World Parkinson’s Day 2021

CARVE coLAB are pleased to be celebrating World Parkinson’s Day 2021 with the release of a film of our recent presentation for the International Centre for Community Music as part of their Creative Conversations series.

Nicola and Amy were joined by project participants Peter, Tricia, Jennie and Edward at an online seminar on 25th March 2021. We talked to practitioners and researchers from across the world about our experiences of co-creating the opera HerStory, and also the value of inviting participants to be an integral part of the research process when analysing the impact of participatory arts projects.

A film of the event will be launched on Sunday 11th April 2021 on ICCM’s YouTube channel.

A short film about our opera project HerStory will also be shown as part of ‘Together, apart’; a live stream by Parkinson’s UK, also taking place on Youtube. This will begin at 11:00 on Sunday 11th April 2021 and you can join the broadcast by clicking on this link.

Nicola will also be talking about the opera in her presentation Skylarks and Parkinson’s: singing, dancing and feeling good as part of King’s College Hospital’s World Parkinson’s Day 2021 Conference on Monday 12th April 2021 3-6pm.
