This year, Parkinson's Europe will begin the development of an immersive experience to inspire and explore Parkinson's creativity. 

Thanks to generous support from Neuroderm, Parkinson's Europe will be bringing together a small group of artists living with Parkinson’s, neurologists, and digital specialists for a two day workshop (Innovation Lab) to explore the potential of immersive digital technologies. The Innovation Lab will be the first step in creating an immersive experience to raise awareness, inspire and encourage exploration of the ‘creative burst’ experienced by people with Parkinson’s.

This collaborative workshop will take place in July 2022 at the Market Hall in Plymouth which is home to the only immersive dome of its kind in Europe. Led by creative producers Professor Mike Phillips (Professor of Interdisciplinary Arts and Director of iDAT Lab at Plymouth University, UK) and Lindsey Hall (Chief Executive of the Real Ideas Organisation), the workshop will be structured to maximise exploration and experimentation, bringing in diverse voices, while increasing understanding among disciplines and lived experiences.

Once the workshop is complete, we will provide an update and a plan for the next steps in making the immersive experience a reality.
