The Art of Attachment is an arts based project led by local substance misuse charity, Brighton Oasis Project, in partnership with acclaimed artists, Lemn Sissay and Charlotte Vincent. The project involves an exciting programme of research and creative activity funded by Wellcome Trust and Arts Council England and seeks to explore individual experiences of attachment, an area that is of increasing importance in the fields of substance misuse, mental health and children’s services.
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.
