They aim to share their process, their learnings, and explain the sculpture as a living and breathing thing. Come join the conversation as they explore the challenges and rewarding outcomes of public engagement as it relates to both science research and art making.

About the Project

Colouring Adult Eczema: getting under the skin is a public engagement art project commissioned by Professor Sinéad Langan at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, supported by the Wellcome Trust. It was created and produced by artists Peter Hudson and Julia Vogl and inspired by nationwide workshops with thirty adults living with eczema from across the UK in the summer of 2019. Adults living with eczema, or with indirect experience of eczema, were invited to attend the creative workshops, which aimed to challenge stereotypes about adult eczema in society and to understand how individuals perceive eczema affects long-term health and social outcomes through the creation of a web art and digital storytelling project.
