One of our members, Jan Sopher will be launching her Brain Box art exhibition in Parkinson's Awareness Week in April.
The Brain Box exhibition is the result of a collaborative project in which over 40
individuals affected by Parkinson’s disease express their innermost thoughts
and feelings by creating a piece of art work. The “canvas” for their work is a
small, white, wooden box and the media used include words, photos, textiles,
drawings and everyday items.
Jan will be exibiting in Hartlepool, Newcastle and Gateshead, full details are listed below. Please do go along to see the exhibition, perhaps a few people could get together and do a visit together, what a great way to get to know each other!
