Vauxhall Bacchanal - The Triumph of Pain: The Duckie Drop In: Mark Whitelaw, Robin Whitmore, Jonny Hey, Tim Brunsden
Duckie have been running arts workshops in Graham House, a hostel for long term entrenched alcoholics in Vauxhall.
Often referred to as street drinkers or dossers, hostel residents live chaotic lives with a number of overlapping problems: alcohol dependency, drug addiction, poor mental health, family breakdown, run ins with the police over petty crime.
Over the past year, supported by the Gulbenkian Foundation, five creative enablers from Duckie have been running a drop in, treating the residents as artists and developing performance, video and visual art works that reflect on their lives, their feelings and their desire to change.
The exhibition takes place in the Level 2 foyers of the Royal Festival Hall.
