A few months back I posted a blog on resilience–a person’s ability to bounce back from adversity. I noted how the skill could be developed and enhanced.
Two artists from Montana show us how resilience can be forged—not only as an individual effort but as a collective one as well; an initiative that involves the PD community everywhere.
The project is impressive. Check them out, at Forging Resilience, and participate!
The art installation, as described by the artists “brings together inspiring quotes, stories, texts, wordplay and photography to share many journeys of resilience from the global Parkinson’s community into one installation that will take the shape of a tree with thousands of leaves. Each leaf will have the quote or message of someone living with or touched by Parkinson’s from around the world.”
The Tree of Resilience will premiere in Missoula, Montana, May 9-31, 2016, at the Montana Museum of Art and Culture, MMAC.
The first international exhibition will then open at the 4th World Parkinson Congress from September 20-23, 2016, at the Oregon Convention Center, OCC in Portland, Oregon.
