The Erasmus+ partnership project "Art and Social Change", (project no. 2016-1-LT01-KA202-023234), is a collaboration between:


The project will develop a co-production methodology to deliver health care training using the arts with those in long-term recovery from addiction. The project will continue until early 2019.


AHSWs role is primarily around dissemination and providing a web-based community of practice resource for the project partners, and ultimately a web based resource on a co-produced training methodology. We are very excited to be working with Portraits of Recovery in Manchester, supported by Theo Stickley, Associate Professor of Mental Health at Nottingham University and long-term advocate for arts and health.


Vilnius College hosted the first partner meeting on the 13th-14th December 2016 and you can see a photo here of AHSW Chair, Sue Isherwood, and AHSW Director, Alex Coulter, with the group on the steps of the College.
