Recovery Rising Conference and Festival

About Recovery Rising

Proposed for summer 2020, and then rescheduled for 2021, this one-day event aimed to connect people across mental health services with speakers from across the UK, share innovative and imaginative practices in Recovery, and celebrate work created by people with lived experience.

We at Recovery Devon held the torch for this festival as long as we could – however, after a couple of postponements, we have now decided to reallocate the funds to community work for the time being.
 
A message from James at Recovery Devon explains more:
 
“With heavy hearts, we have decided to cancel this event for now and will instead focus our resources on community work. We understand this will come as a disappointment, but not only does the pandemic situation forbid public gatherings but the celebratory nature of a Recovery Rising festival feels out of step with current public sentiment. However, our commitment to an open, free-to-attend event remains and we will keep our plans under review.”
 
You can hear more about ways to be involved in 2021 from James in his New Year message here.
 
Thank you to everyone who offered their time, expertise, or presence to Recovery Rising, and hoping we can evolve into something new together, soon!
 

Very best wishes – Recovery Rising team
