RADE – Need your Vote.
RADE engages drug users with the arts and therapeutic supports and provides a platform for their artistic expression. Since 2004, we have produced 8 creative writing books, 8 film documentaries, 3 short films, 6 original theatre plays, a radio play for RTE, an award nominated opera for the Dublin Fringe Festival and several art exhibitions. Through partnerships with drug services, arts organisations and professional artists our approach competes with the passive stimulation experienced by drug taking and helps to promote progression, including self confidence, team work and a number of knock on learning such as literary skills, public speaking, movement.
