Art of Attachment Showcase – Jubilee Library
Brighton Oasis Project (BOP) brings 20 years experience working with women who have a problem with drugs and/or alcohol misuse, as well as children and young people who have been affected by substance misuse in the family.
We have been funded by Arts Council England and a Wellcome Arts Award to undertake an 18-month project exploring individual experiences of attachment through the medium of the arts. We are working with lead artists, choreographer/director Charlotte Vincent and poet/author/broadcaster Lemn Sissay.
Art of Attachment takes over Jubilee Library for 2 weeks over May half term. There will be lots to see and do so come along and get involved
