STREET ART & STIGMA
ADP South Community Forum
Working with ADP South Community Forum (Aberdeenshire Alcohol & Drug Partnership) Elev8arts commissioned professional artists to engage with Forum members to create a public artwork and host a programme of creative workshops. The artists worked with participants on collage, and mosaic techniques. The final mosaic is filled with individual participants stories and mosaic elements and was installed on Stonehaven beach front. An open workshop for the public was hosted on installation.
The main aims of the project were to:
Challenge stigma facing those in recovery
Unleash creativity and increase wellbeing of forum members
Engage with the public and create an artwork for the local community
Raise awareness for the Forum and the work they do
The project is preparing to roll out in different areas of Aberdeenshire.
