Everyday living without everyday tasks

Project overview

Everyday living without everyday tasks is a project that aims to educate people about what it is like to live with stroke. Stroke is a leading cause of disability worldwide, and significantly impacts on people’s ability to undertake daily living tasks, such as buttoning a shirt. In this project we will foster engagement between stroke survivors, artists, researchers, students and the public to create artwork that uses everyday objects that stroke survivors have difficulty in interacting with to portray feelings and experiences of stroke survivors.
