MANCHESTER, NH – This winter the Currier Museum of Art is working with Partnership for Drug-Free Kids to provide educational experiences in our galleries and classrooms that support parents whose children have a substance use disorder.

The dynamic new program, “The Art of Hope,” speaks to the urgency that we feel in southern New Hampshire to provide resources for families impacted by addiction. We hope to provide parents a supportive, creative and beautiful place for respite, time for reflection around great works of art, and a sense of togetherness with their spouses, partners and a larger parent community.

Parents will receive mentoring that will guide them in their children’s recovery, as well as experiencing the benefits of a strong support network.

Catholic Charities NH Counseling Services will be on hand to provide clinical support to those who may want it. Catholic Charities serves people of all faiths and walks of it. The program will be offered Mondays, February 5 through 26 from 6 to 8 p.m. This program is free and open to the public, but participants must register as space is limited. Reserve your participation today by emailing LThomson@Currier.org, calling 603.518.4951.
