Do you know anyone with Parkinson's Disease? Most people do, and it is not surprising when you look at the statistics: there are an estimated 10 million people living with Parkinson's Disease worldwide and in the UK around 1 in 500 are diagnosed with this cruel degenerative neurological disease - that currently has no cure.
As a call to action, art and science unite with Cure3 (Cure Cubed) the acclaimed contemporary art fundraising exhibition, established in 2017 and now in its fourth edition, devised and curated by Artwise in partnership with Bonhams to raise awareness and funds for Cure Parkinson's.
The unique concept for Cure3 centers around each artist being given a bespoke Perspex cube measuring just 20cm3 as a compact space to interact with in any way to create original artworks on or within. The resultant highly sought-after and collectable artworks are exhibited at Bonhams and sold online.
Cure Parkinson's is an inspirational and dynamic charity with a major goal to find a cure for Parkinson's Disease. To date, thanks to the generosity of all the contributing artists, Cure3 has raised over 1 million pounds fo Cure Parkinson's, to fund research to slow, stop and ultimately reverse Parkinson's.
Parkinson's is a debilitating condition affecting over 145,000 people in the UK alone and 10 million people worldwide. It is a neurological disorder characterised by tremors, stiffness, slowness of movement and balance problems. Other symptoms can include mood changes, loss of sense of smell, chronic pain and sleep disruption. It is predicted that 1 person in 37 will receive a diagnosis of Parkinson's in their lifetime.
