This collaboration brings art, design and recovery together.  Jennifer Yane of Jennifer Unlimited has been working with the Richmond Behavioral Health Authority since 2006 to teach and create art with program participants in the Marshall Center. This year, they joined with mOb+Store Front for Community Design to bring design into the series and elevate it to arts activism. The soundscapes you will hear throughout the interview were created by participants in mOb.


Individuals in Recovery

This show focuses on individual stories of people in recovery and how they support others through their peer support recovery work.

The soundscapes that are embeded within the show are created by participants in the Recovery By Design project. This is a collaborative project between RBHA and the mOb Studios. This project will be highlighted in the show broadcasting on the fourth Friday of the month.
