Recovery in Focus & Inside Stories

Recovery in Focus & Inside Stories 

Open Eye Gallery hands over its gallery to a day of workshops, showcases and discussion with two different but complementary projects ‘Inside Stories’ and ‘Recovery in Focus’. Both projects will launch a public display of their work on our digital window gallery. A work in progress version of Inside Stories will be showing in the gallery throughout the day and the artist will be present to discuss the work. There will be an interactive photography workshop run by addictions therapist and creative facilitator, Jill Whittingham and the ‘Recovery in Focus’ team, followed by a discussion event which brings artist, Alexa Wright and Jill Whittingham, together to discuss their projects.

We welcome people to book onto both events and stay with us throughout the day, or drop in for a shorter time. For information and booking details below:

 

Recovery In Focus Workshop

10am – 2.00pm including breaks 

A hands-on workshop using photography to explore our stories of recovery from addiction.

About this event

This half day workshop is an introduction to the Recovery In Focus programme created by Eternal Media, which uses photography to explore experiences of addiction and recovery.  This encompasses all forms of addiction including alcohol, drugs, gambling or any other substance/behaviour.  In the workshop we will be delving into a collection of images to express and share how photos can express how we view recovery, as well as taking and sharing photos on the day to illustrate what recovery means to us.

So much of a successful recovery is about being connected with others who understand the nature of our experience and this workshop offers a great opportunity to connect with others, extending our recovery network in a really creative way. 

The workshop is open to anyone in recovery from addiction who is able to take a photo – your level of photographic skill or length of time in recovery is no barrier!  You can use a smartphone or digital camera.  Several experienced photographers from the team at Eternal Media will be on hand to give support and creative suggestions too.

This session will be facilitated by Jill Whittingham who is in recovery herself, an Addictions Therapist and Director at Eternal Media. 

You can book onto the workshop HERE

 

An In Conversation between artist Alexa Wright and therapist and creative facilitator Jill Whittingham 

2.30 – 3.30pm 

Artist Alexa Wright and therapist and creative facilitator Jill Whittingham will discuss their projects, both of which use photography as a tool for expression and for processing personal journeys. 

‘Inside Stories’ will be screened throughout the day in our gallery foyer.  

Artist Alexa Wright, in partnership with Novus, has been working with men at HMP Liverpool and women at HMP Styal to create video works that explore what words such as Freedom, Responsibility, Judgment and Power mean for them. Works in progress towards this project will be screened throughout the day. Alexa will be present to invite feedback and conversation around the videos. She is especially keen to gain feedback from anyone with experience of the criminal justice system.
