BDP service users are invited to a Create Space art group workshop to take part in two projects raising awareness of the impact of alcohol and other drugs.

Launched in November last year as the latest addition to BDP's Creative Communities, Create Space is a therapeutic space for service users affected by alcohol and other drugs to paint, draw, design and create.

A special workshop, being held on Tuesday 21st January, will see service users from across BDP (including our Bereavement Through Addiction support group) working on two special projects:

The Political History of Smack and Crack

Design artwork for an exhibition held as part of the national production of The Political History of Smack & Crack at Bristol Old Vic on 22nd - 25th January.

The theatre show is inspired by the writer’s own experience in jail and rehab and the 1981 riots following a national heroin epidemic. This  community art project sees new artwork made in partnership with UK charities responding to addiction or homelessness in Bristol, Manchester, Canterbury, Newcastle and Birmingham.

Take Drugs Seriously | Action

Following the workshop, join us to pant 4,000 flowers in memory of those who have died as a result of drugs and learn how you can get involved in campaigning for change. Held on College Green on the 25th January.
