About Us

We are a unique, pioneering Manchester-based visual arts charity supporting people and communities affected by addiction and recovery. We are the UK’s only contemporary visual arts organisation working within in this field.

By working collaboratively with leading contemporary artists, people in recovery, and communities in recovery, we share the human face of the recovery experience – breaking down barriers and promoting inclusion. 

Central to our approach is the idea of Recoverism, which uses art to promote inclusive dialogue and identity.
