Disrupting the downward spiral: How art may help living with Parkinson's.

Disrupting the downward spiral: How art may help living with Parkinson's.

Posted on behalf of DRIG - Dundee Research Interest Group

The University of Dundee has formed a partnership with Parkinson's patients interested in research,
the Dundee Research Interest Group (DRIG). We are planning and organising this event as a joint effort. It evolved from a workshop with members of DRIG as part of a separate Dundee project between artist Daksha Pateland the MRC PPU Lab of the University of Dundee. It is linked to an exhibition by Daksha Patel at the DCA featuring work connected to Parkinson's research at the MRC-PPU.


This event is open to anybody interested in Parkinson’s and its treatment.
Participation is free but registration is necessary as the number of participants is limited.



Programme:


13:00 Session 1: Parkinson’s and Art
A compilation of examples of projects, results, research topics, artists.


Session 2: Rhythmic Marks, a technique to support people with Parkinson’s

Session 3: Podium Discussion: The impact of art on the everyday life of people with Parkinson's
