Out Loud Art Exhibition – November 2022
This was the first exhibition by Families Out Loud. It was open to all artists, non-artists and makers living in Wiltshire and the southwest who have lived-experience, an interest in or a concern about addiction and its effects.
We wanted to create a thought provoking exhibition that had a broad range of work covering a spectrum of experience from dark to light, and one that showed how art allows us to examine, confront and survive addiction.
We looked for strong, dynamic, and thoughtful artwork to express the experiences and issues of family members or users themselves, or artists who have an interest in this subject.
First Prize – £500
Second Prize – £250
Public Choice Prize – £100
