CASTLELAND Community Centre is currently displaying artwork and poetry from the Barry branch of Recovery Cymru.

Metamorphosis is a transformative exhibition of work by local members and volunteers of Recovery Cymru – based at 232 Holton Road; a mutual-aid and self-help charity that supports people recovering from forms of addiction, including alcohol and drug dependency.

Stories told in the artwork show the stages from seemingly hopeless addiction, and the road to recovery out of it.

The exhibition contains many moving, intensely personal and powerful experiences distilled into words and images. Recovery Cymru believes the exhibition contains a message that is ultimately hopeful and inspiring.

These remarkable pieces of artwork are proof that however dark a life blighted by addiction may seem, there are ways out, there are people who understand, and have made the journey themselves, and want to reach out and help others.

See the evidence of these remarkable journeys, experiences and transformations for yourself.

If you would like to have a look at the work or you are interested in displaying a piece, please contact Eileen Moore/Peter Phillips on 01446 403549 or visit Castleland Community Centre based at Belvedere Crescent, Barry, which is open Monday to Friday from 10am until 5pm.

All are welcome to come along to the exhibition which is located on the right hand side of the staircase leading to the first floor.

The exhibition is a perfect chance to find out more about Recovery Cymru and Castleland Community Centre or to simply enjoy the artwork on display.
