In 2020 we found new online ways of working with an every growing group of artists in recovery and even managed to squeeze a few in person sessions in including a live showing of some of our Terminal Uniqueness videos. We have been looking at what makes us unique with sessions in Brighton and have been connecting with a larger global community through Facebook. We ran two rounds of artistic commissions and the results included original music videos and kinetic sculptures. Part of our playful exploration of Terminal Uniqueness involved us creating a Taskmaster and Great British Bake off combination with the small performance adventures team competing to be the winner. This took place at The Railway Land Wildlife Trust and is part of our programme of work about improving our mental health collectively. Do have a look.
In 2021 with funding from The National Lottery Community Fund and The Chalk Cliff Trust, we will be offering a third round of paid artistic commissions to those in mental health and addiction recovery in Sussex and will be sharing the results in March on our Facebook Group.
