Manchester art project

The projects aims to move participants along their individual recovery pathway by giving them a platform to say what they want to say, through art.

Get involved in an exciting opportunity for wounded, injured and sick Service men and women, veterans and their family members to take part in an art project, aiming to improve participants’ self-awareness, confidence, self-esteem and motivation to move along their individual recovery pathway.

Participants will work with professional sculptor Al Johnson to create life-size sculptures, culminating in an exhibition at The Lowry Hotel in Manchester.
