My name is Alison Lapper - I am an artist, presenter and disability campaigner. I'm also a member of the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists. You may recognise me from the Alison Lapper Pregnant statue by my friend Marc Quinn, erected in Trafalgar Square in 2005.

I know the power of art and how it can help you overcome anxiety, grief and get you out of some very dark times. I've experienced these dark times first hand after the tragic death of my son Parys.

As a result of my loss and in the hope to make a difference for others, I am pleased to present ‘The Drug of Art’. Through a series of workshops, podcasts and a touring exhibition, the Drug of Art aims to encourage the use of art and creative expression to help young people with their mental health and wellbeing, combating the isolation and loneliness that has only become more commonplace since the Covid-19 pandemic.
