Recovery in Practice
How do recovery journeys—both individual and collective—inspire creative processes, inform research trajectories, and build community? Join us for an innovative gathering of artists, authors, activists, and scientific researchers as they share their stories and foster conversations about what it means to practice recovery.
Through social practice artworks, scientific research, and creative writing, conference speakers will train students and community members in best practices, coalition building, and harm reduction to achieve social impact for the Columbia and Manhattanville communities. The conference will also attend carefully to the intersectional nexus between recovery and decarceration, foregrounding the voices of formerly incarcerated individuals.
This multi-part gathering is open to the public, and we especially encourage the entire Columbia community—students, faculty, staff—and all our neighbors in Manhattanville and beyond to engage.
