Kaupapa | About

Recovery St is a kaupapa Māori-led community arts organisation that has been working with ‘hard-to-reach communities’ in the region, including rehabs, prisons, mental health services, and addictions services, to deliver a unique theraputic approach that utilises the healing power of performance.

 

 

Established in 2018, ‘Recovery St’ is facilitated by mental health/ addition clinicians and art therapists, who are arts practitioners.

 

We blend evidence-based Western therapies and Tikanga Māori principals with art therapies such as Drama therapy, Role Play, and Theatre therapy. RE-STORYING is the process of reconstructing new meaning from one’s personal story, using mātauranga Māori as a base for everything we do. We deliver therapeutic creative groups open to the public on a weekly basis in West Auckland.

 

 

Founders of Recovery St, Chris Ranui-Molloy – Creative Director/ Consultant Therapist/ AOD Practitioner (Ngatimanawa / Ngai Tūhoe) – has a Master of Arts (Drama) from the University of Auckland. He is an award-winning writer, director and actor in theatre and screen since 2004. He combines his extensive artistic background and his academic experience with his lived experience of recovery from mental health and addiction challenges as well as his clinical role as an addiction counsellor.
