THE ART OF GRIEF
Working creatively with five families who have been effected by drug and alcohol misuse this project uses video, photography and recorded narrative to create 5 minute digital journals documenting bereavement, living loss and grief. The short films were commissioned and produced by Turn Consultancy by Cornwall Council to illustrate the complexities of families effected by this kind of loss. They will also be used to break the stigma attached to such deaths and the terminology often used to describe individuals drug related issues. My role as an artist was to find a way to tell each story creatively by working in partnership with each family.
The short films were released in November 2021 and haver permission by the participating families to be shared.
