An exploration of a year of recovery, art, drama and education
The annual report for the years of 2021 to 2021 highlights the work undertaken by both the rehab and training team, creative departments and all the participants in RADE.
The report showcases the work RADE has been doing during the height of the pandemic, implementing remote working opportunities, Zoom Meetings as well as safe return-to-work protocols, all the while keeping the supportive and artistic work at RADE alive.
