Parkinson’s is a debilitating condition affecting over 145,000 people in the U.K. and 7 – 10 million people worldwide. Co-Founded by Tom Issacs in 2005, The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) is a charitable organisation created by and for people living with Parkinson’s with one bold aim – to find a cure for Parkinson’s. For the last 15 years, CPT has been committed to ground-breaking funding research into new treatments and to date, Cure3 has raised more than ¾ million pounds support this vital work.

CPT is the only Parkinson’s charitable organisation in the U.K. solely focussed on finding a cure for Parkinson’s. In its 15th anniversary year, CPT can look back over numerous landmark achievements it has helped fund and support towards this ultimate goal including:

Cure3 was devised by Susie Allen and Laura Culpan from Artwise, the dynamic curatorial team behind the original RCA Secret postcard project. Cure3 has established itself as a critical and commercial success, securing plaudits from a host of international media including SKY News, BBC News, F.T., How To Spend It, The Evening Standard, The Sunday Times, The Observer Magazine, The Telegraph, The Art Newspaper, Wallpaper* and World of Interiors – as well as raising significant funds for the ongoing work of CPT.

In 2005, the goal of CPT was to render the charity redundant by finding a cure for Parkinson’s. The funds raised by Cure3 in 2020 will support the essential work carried out by The Cure Parkinson’s Trust and continue the legacy of Tom Isaacs with his aim of consigning Parkinson’s to a disease of the past.

Format of Selling Exhibition Please note that Cure3 is not an auction, each artwork is individually priced by the artist and sold at this fixed price online at works will be on preview at Bonhams from 5th September and sales will go live online from Tuesday 8th September 8 am. All profits will go directly to The Cure Parkinson’s Trust, to fund research to slow, stop or reverse Parkinson’s disease.

The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) takes a patient-centric approach to funding innovative projects and inspirational scientists with the potential to change the course of the condition and make a difference to the lives of people with Parkinson’s. Parkinson’s is a debilitating condition affecting over 145,000 people in the U.K. alone and 10 million people worldwide. It is a neurological disorder characterised by tremors, stiffness, slowness of movement and balance problems. It is predicted that one person in 37 will receive a diagnosis of Parkinson’s in their lifetime.

At CPT, we believe that we are closer than ever to new treatments. For fifteen years, we have been committed to strategically funding research to find a cure for the condition once and for all. The charity’s International Linked Clinical Trials (iLCT) programme identifies potential new treatments by taking existing drugs used to treat other diseases and testing them as treatments for Parkinson’s. Our role is to develop clinical trials to understand if these drugs may be effective to slow, stop or even reverse the progression of Parkinson’s. We believe that our pioneering and collaborative approach to research will one day soon, deliver curative treatments for Parkinson’s.

Artwise Curators (founded in 1996) is a curatorial collective based in London, run by Susie Allen and Laura Culpan, that specialises in curating and producing public art commissions, museum and gallery exhibitions, and innovative art projects for charities such as CPT, WWF and the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature). Artwise projects have been exhibited in many inspiring spaces, such as Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg; Groninger Museum; Centraal Museum, Utrecht; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; The Whitechapel Gallery, and Design Museum in London. Artwise was commissioned to curate the international exhibition for the official Pavilion of Azerbaijan at the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015.
