Strategies of Hope

by Ariella Pahlke

This 25-minute documentary was created by artist-in-residence and videographer Ariella Pahlke, in collaboration with patients, staff and families at the Nova Scotia Rehabilitation Centre’s Acquired Brain Injury Program.

By using a variety of art forms, Ariella facilitated the exploration of how patients, staff and families deal with the impact of the creative process on recovery from brain injury. Participants and other guests were in attendance during the screening in the summer of 2014 to share their insights about the project and their experience of the creative process on recovery.
