'Living with Chronic Illness'. Are you a scientist or clinician and involved with the science around long-term illness, whether that be neurological, inflammatory, gut related or rheumatological. My next Project is to research and create a way to visually communicate long-term illness to support innovation, develop multi-disciplinary collaborations and further the art in science through visual photographic communication. If you think you would like to be part of this project and could offer some interesting scientific aspects, please feel free to contact me below.
Do you want to be part of an online workshop. Its about your exploration of your illness through images, words and art.

'The Art of Chronic Illness' 29 July 2018.
A workshop focused on chronic illness, the emotions and feelings, positive and negative, that we have that surround living every day with an illness. Working in collaboration with a wonderfully creative artist and herbalist, Charlotte Chance and the Soul Apothecary, you will create your own work using abstract images and apothecary items. You will create a piece of work that you can take away with you.
Participants should include those that know, care for, support or have a general interest in chronic illness.

'Unrest' Film Evening and Photographic Exhibition, 'A Broken Biochemistry' 12 May 2018
Jennifer Brea's Sundance award-winning documentary, Unrest, is a personal journey from patient to advocate to storyteller. Jennifer is twenty-eight years-old, working on her PhD at Harvard, and months away from marrying the love of her life when a mysterious fever leaves her bedridden. When doctors tell her it's "all in her head," she picks up her camera as an act of defiance and brings us into a hidden world of millions that medicine abandoned. Jennifer Brea's wonderfully honest and humane portrayal asks us to rethink the stigma around an illness that affects millions.
Many Thanks to the sponsors of the Workshop and the M.E Association.
