Unseen Hands

2020-2022

Unseen Hands is a partnership between University of Glasgow's Centre for Virus Research (CVR) and Terrence Higgins Trust Peer Support Scotland Group (THT), which aims to explore the many different experiences of living with a blood-borne virus (BBV).

Alice had the privilege of facilitating several artistic workshops attended by CVR staff, fundamental virologists and members of THT Peer Support Scotland. Through these workshops we focused on sharing individual lived experience and aimed to connect with and inform research practice. This project continues on in the form of regular discussions with THT and CVR, aiming to break down barriers and encourage communication to address and reduce stigma and discrimination.
