JIA & Me - Art Competitions

Research has found art therapy can help children to express emotions more easily, develop positive relationships and communicate with their families and with the health professionals caring for them.

Starting from 2015, JIA-at-NRAS has been holding nationwide 'JIA & ME Art Competitions' for children and young people who have JIA. We believe these events will provide them an outlet to express what having childhood arthritis means to them and how it affects their lives.

Four JIA & ME Art Competitions have already been successfully held in Oxford, Bristol, Southampton and London. We are now accepting entries for our next competition in Manchester!
