STREET ART & STIGMA
ADP South Community Forum
Working with ADP South Community Forum (Aberdeenshire Alcohol & Drug Partnership) Professional artists were commissioned to engage with Forum members and created a series of public artworks and creative workshops for the community.
The project has to date installed 2 final outcomes; A mosaic in Stonehaven and a mural in Banchory. Multiple workshops have been held for a diverse range of particpating community groups and have covered techniques including collage, mosaic, expressive painting and stenciling.
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
