Shedding Light on Psoriasis
Filmed on location in Barcelona in October 2022, this exciting project by Almirall for World Psoriasis Day aims to raise awareness of psoriasis and its impact on people’s daily lives beyond the rashes you see on our skin.

A long-term project by IFPA to raise awareness of psoriatic disease by utilising Twitch and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Throughout 2022, I'm hosting a dedicated weekly show on Twitch where we build an in-game island and community to raise awareness and offer a space where others can share their psoriatic disease story.
