ABOUT THE PROJECT
This project brings together artists, patients and neuroscientists to bridge the gap between objective research into Parkinson’s Disease and people’s lived experience of the condition.
Picturing Parkinson's draws on research undertaken as part of the Oxford Quantification Study (OxQUIP) led by Professor Antoniades, which is all about developing new ways to measure Parkinson's symptoms. It is part of a continuing collaboration with Dr Jim Harris, Teaching Curator at the Ashmolean Museum.
The project's inaugural event on 16 March 2019 was funded by the University of Oxford's Public Engagement with Research Seed Fund. It was a collaboration with artist Yejeong Mutter.
The second event was a Patient Workshop on 10 June 2019 at the John Radcliffe Hospital. This event was facilitated by artist Jan Sargeant.
