Strategies of Hope is an innovative documentary collaboration between filmmaker Ariella Pahlke and patients, staff, and families at the Nova Scotia Rehabilitation Centre’s Acquired Brain Injury Program. Using a variety of art forms, they explore the effects of a stroke or brain injury and share strategies for recovery.

The premiere screening of Strategies of Hope took place on June 25, 2014 at Capital Health’s Bethune Ballroom. Participants and other guests were in attendance to share their insights about the project and the impact of the creative process on recovery.

Strategies of Hope is sponsored by the NS Rehab Centre’s Acquired Brain Injury Program, the QEII Foundation's Rehabilitation Endowment Fund, the Artists-in-Residence within Dalhousie University Humanities-HEALS Program, the Robert Pope Foundation, and the Centre for Art Tapes. The film's premier screening was made possible in part by a grant from the Royal Society of Canada.
