One of the key driving forces throughout the whole campaign has been the Brownlee patients themselves. Their involvement and direction has led to the creation of two innovative pieces of work. 

HIV stigma… what’s all the drama?

When exploring and developing ideas to tackle HIV Stigma the Brownlee HIV Patient Forum suggested that drama might be an excellent way to reflect and validate HIV+ people’s lived experiences.  Collaborating with Scottish Youth Theatre we have produced four short dramatic scenes that were developed by a BAFTA award winning writer and Brownlee Centre patients.

All the dramatic clips and  one detailing how we developed them can be found on YouTube using the links below.
