Abstract

In this article, we examine the contribution of a distinctive participatory intervention, the Brighton-based New Note Orchestra (NNO), to our understanding of the sources of subjective wellbeing for people who are dealing with addiction. The focus of the article is upon Solace, a performance piece generated through collaborative improvisation by NNO and presented at several public venues from December 2017 to March 2018.
