About the event

Can you imagine not being able to brush your own teeth?
Can you imagine not being able to open a condom or be intimate with a new partner?
Can you imagine not being able to butter your toast and make your kids' breakfast?

For 690,000 people in the UK, this is the reality. Every 20 minutes a new diagnosis is made, yet only one in 20 people knows what RA is – making it the biggest invisible illness in the UK. More so than well-known illnesses like Parkinson's (127,000) and MS (100,000).

Understand what RA sufferers are going through: special pharmaceutical gloves will replicate the affect the disease has on the hands, and through a series of installations you will be able to experience the daily struggles RA sufferers have to face. Case studies from all ages will be there to share their experience with you on the day.
