PORe is a unique, pioneering Manchester-based visual arts charity supporting people and communities affected by addiction and recovery. We are the UK’s only contemporary visual arts organisation working within in this field.

September is Recoverist Month, a new annual month long series of new commissions, performances, and creative events including the premiere of Sue Devaney‘s (Coronation Street’s Debbie Webster) talking heads style performance. Click the image above or here for more info.

By working collaboratively with leading contemporary artists, people in recovery, and communities in recovery, we share the human face of the recovery experience – breaking down barriers and promoting inclusion. 

Central to our approach is the idea of Recoverism, which uses art to promote inclusive dialogue and identity.
