Neuro-Creativity Exhibition 2016
Neuro-Creativity is an educational art-science exhibition to improve public knowledge of Motor Neuron Disease, Cerebral Palsy, Cervical Dystonia and Brain Tumour, and current research on these conditions. It features unique artists who paint with their eyes or became artists after being diagnosed with a disabling disease. Descriptive cards from researchers accompany the artworks, to explain featured conditions, current research and available treatments.
The private view (buy tickets here), with live music and free drinks, will be a unique opportunity to meet the artists. You will have the chance to know more about their work and personal stories. Artworks will be on sale – 20% of the proceedings will go towards adaptive equipment purchase, research and awareness-education.
