1 Hour More
The storytelling project '1 hour more' aims to raise public attention about Parkinson’s disease at an international level, providing people with Parkinson’s with emotional and practical support.
This storytelling project is realised by BookRepublic - The Content Agency, with the endorsement of the European Parkinson’s Disease Association (EPDA) and with the sponsorship of Zambon SpA.
The heart of the project is a book of 24 real-life stories of hope and reaction written by a professional author and validated by the EPDA. The stories focus on the value of ‘time’ for people impacted with Parkinson’s, i.e. people with Parkinson’s, carers and healthcare professionals. There is also a practical part to the project, which is represented by a booklet of useful tips suggested by the people who have provided their stories (the interviewees).
To support the project, a dedicated digital storytelling platform has been developed – 1hourmore.eu.
Following on from 11 April 2016 - World Parkinson's Disease Day - the project has moved another step forward from the previous key question – ‘What would you do if you had one more hour a day?’. By taking a visual approach and using the scribing technique, BookRepublic has produced 12 videos that ‘tell’ stories of courage and reaction to the condition.
Each video focuses on a specific aspect of living with Parkinson’s, condensed in a simple keyword. The first keyword is #Companionship, and this will be followed by new keywords every 15 days throughout 2016. The keywords' task is to sum up a story regarding the three groups of people involved - people with Parkinson’s, caregivers, healthcare professionals - in less than two minutes.
