Carys' Website

Stroke Hub Wales challenged Carys to create a campaign which aims to raise awareness about the possibility of young people having strokes and to encourage the age range of 16-21 to live healthily to decrease their risk.

This campaign seeks to inform young people by immersing them in the reality of stroke survivors.

The core concept is a pair of glasses which restricts the wearer’s vision in ways which replicate impairments experienced by stroke survivors.

Glasses would be sent to schools/universities as part of an educational pack with guidance for teachers, suggested workshops and packaging.
