Bravo 22 Company is an arts programme for the Armed Forces community.

It helps to improve confidence and motivation, supporting rehabilitation and recovery as well as the transition into civilian life.

Founded in 2011, the programme brought together ex-serving personnel to write, produce and perform their own play – using theatre as a vehicle for recovery.

Since its inception the Bravo 22 Company has grown from strength to strength and has become a powerful addition to the Legion’s recovery programme, delivered in partnership with The Drive Project.

Brighton Art Project

Participants created life-size sculptures, telling their story of recovery; from injuries, to painful memories, to worries about civilian life. The four-week programmed culminated in a public exhibition, The Art of Recovery.

After the success of its theatre projects, we expanded the programme to include model making, sculpture and collage.

Projects now take place all across the UK and are open to wounded, injured and sick Armed Forces personnel and their families.

Everyone is welcome and you don’t need to have any experience – just the enthusiasm to try something new!

If you’d like to get involved email info@thedriveproject.co.uk for more information or visit your local Pop In Centre.
