'Together we have created a new language with which to explore the invisible reality of living with fatigue.'
'Thank you all for giving us as fatigue sufferers the chance to talk, share and explore.'
'I am thrilled that our first attempt at using arts to deepen our understanding of fatigue is proving quite successful.'

Experiencing Fatigue is a collaborative arts and neuroscience research project involving stroke survivors, UCL Institute of Neurology and artist, Sofie Layton.
Through a series of workshops, participants explored the multi-sensory nature of fatigue and ways of expressing this through narrative, metaphor and artistic media.
These have informed final artworks and an online showcase:
'Ensnared: The Inescapable Reality of Fatigue'.
Our aim is to make visible the invisible condition of post-stroke fatigue with the hope of informing scientific research and deepening everyone's understanding of the physical and emotional challenges.
