ART vs REHAB launches free Critical Tool Kits

ART vs REHAB is a platform for those working creatively within addiction, the criminal justice system, homelessness and mental health. It is a catalyst for criticality and change, based on the principles of open innovation and collaborative practice. Conceived by artist and researcher, Hannah Hull, the initiative aims to strengthen the relationship between art and rehabilitation.

Over 100 artists, academics, service users, commissioners and funders have collaborated to produce six FREE Critical Tool Kits to support development in the field. Each Tool Kit is a playful and versatile collection of tasks and resources for creative practitioners.

Beautifully illustrated by Jo Buchan, each Kit addresses a different key theme affecting socially-engaged art practice – including reclaiming evaluation, the affect art institutions have on commissioning, and maintaining creative autonomy for artists and participants.
