TAKE A GLIMPSE INTO THE WORLD OF JANE

Experience living with Epilepsy. Hear Jane’s words, see what she sees, feel what she feels.

UCB is proud to bring the attendees of the 2022 Living with Epilepsy Conference a virtual reality experience in partnership with Jane Gauntlett, founder of Sublime & Ridiculous, a company focused on bringing together performance and technology to build empathy. Jane is also an adult with epilepsy, which allows her to combine her art and her firsthand experiences, and in turn, to share her journey. This twenty minute program will take part throughout the day of the conference and participants can sign up separately to take part.

All pre-registered participants will be sent a link to register or you can sign up the morning of the conference, if space permits.
