Patterns of Perception

A creative collaboration between individuals with Parkinson’s Disease, Central Saint Martins, English National Ballet, UCL and artist Ruairiadh O’Connell aiming to find better ways to dispel misconceptions and communicate real insights into the experiences of those living with Parkinson’s Disease.

In 2020, Patterns of Perception recieved the Outstanding Public Engagement Project award for their incredible cross-disciplinary work in the Centre’s Public Engagement Awards.

Quotes from participants in the project:

“It is not just a motor condition, there are many aspects to living with Parkinson’s disease”

“There is much that is visible but also much that is invisible”

“It can be tiring, frustrating, annoying but there is still plenty to enjoy. Don’t pity them; treat them as people”
