“It’s Not Funny” is a community of people living with Parkinson’s Disease. Sharing their stories through photography, film and words. We inform the general public that Parkinson’s disease is not just an old person’s disease, more people in the prime of their lives are being diagnosed and then go into hiding uncertain and even fearful of how they will be perceive. We help them feel at ease with the disease with dignity and in a positive, light hearted way. You’re constantly hearing the bad news about Parkinson’s disease. We think it’s time to hear about the brighter side of living with the condition.
Being diagnosed with Parkinson’s is life-changing but it’s not all bad. Being positive opens doors to a good life despite the condition. Indeed, science is beginning to reveal that positive attitudes, community involvement, physical activity and social interactions are all good things for people with PD. You’ll find there’s no better evidence than the very people themselves and the personal stories they share of the power of being positive with PD.
“It’s Not Funny” was registered with ASIC as a company limited by guarantee in 2019, and is in the process of obtaining charity status with the ACNC.
Established in late 2016, we are a lean yet creative team united by our common purpose. We have a diverse range of capability and incredible depth of experience that means we are strongly placed to deliver on our proposition.
We’ve always understood that the collective is greater than the sum of its parts!
