VIP is a group of military veterans who work with artists to produce digital art projects as part of FACT's arts and health strand Healthy Spaces.
Stuart Griffiths who is an ex-serviceman himself led the group on the photography project and said "Many veterans feel stigmatised when they leave the Forces and are looking for a light at the end of the tunnel; and hopefully this flagship project has been a beacon for the group."
Group member Brett Squires is an ex-soldier who found himself
homeless upon leaving the army in 2003 and said "Taking part in the
project has been great. It gives me something to focus on and I
always look forward to coming here. When I left the forces, there
was nothing out there and it's only recently that there has been
more support for veterans that need it. I have loved doing the
photography and learning about IT is helpful for job hunting."
