Arts & Health South West is a partner in an Erasmus Plus funded project called Art & Social Change, which is developing an experiential art training programme for health workers who work in addiction and recovery. This is the third episode in a special podcast series that explores the work, expertise, and stories of the people doing this work, and what the research is showing the arts & health sector. In this episode we speak with representatives of 'recovery cafes' in Lithuania and the UK to learn about what these venues are and why they are important to addiction and recovery. Joining us are Agne Bykova from Mano Guru, in Vilnius Lithuania and Pete Davies, from CasCade Creative Recovery in Brighton in England.
