Daveaitch's curator insight, February 14, 4:36 AM

An interesting project this, getting a host of artistic and graphic talent to have a crack at a Parkinson's disease awareness campaign for charity Parkinson's UK.

"We wanted to explain the diversity of Parkinson’s and that everyone’s Parkinson’s is different” which is a great idea using multiple viewpoints and representations.

Personally I think some work, and some don't, and some appear a tad too melodramatic, like a poster for some Hollywood horror movie.

I'd love to see  the reactions to these from actual sufferers.

Maybe it needs a bit of shock tactics to wake up an anaesthetised charity audience?

Even so, it's a great idea, challenging perceptions of what a charity ad should be like.
