Road to Recovery, WY-FI’s Pop-Up Photography and Poetry Exhibition is travelling across West Yorkshire to Bradford. The exhibit will be in Kirkgate Market from 10-14 February 2020.
Road to Recovery was in Calderdale back in December, where it was hosted for five days in Halifax Borough Market.
This painfully honest exhibition shows the strength of the human soul when recovering from homelessness, addiction, re-offending and mental ill health. Visitors can see and read about experiences that most humans never have to encounter – created and presented by people who have been there themselves – and recovered.
The exhibition in Calderdale was officially opened by Nick, a WY-FI beneficiary, and Mandy Newman, Operations Manager at Inspire North.
WY-FI staff and people with their own lived experience of homelessness, addiction, re-offending and/or mental ill health shared their experiences and signposted people who needed help themselves.
A Mum, who lost her daughter to addiction, found the insight of WY-FI beneficiaries invaluable and was grateful for the chance to talk candidly about how the complexity of multiple needs impacts family members.
Visitors said “A brilliant idea. I wish you every success. Keep going with what you’re doing!”
And that’s exactly what we’ll be doing when we travel to Kirkgate Market in February.
The exhibition has been produced entirely by beneficiaries of the WY-FI Project. WY-FI is one of 12 partnerships in England supported by the National Lottery Community Fund.
