Severe ME Artists Project

#MEAction is excited to announce our Severe ME Artists Project which will feature work from those within the severe ME community in honor of Severe ME Day on August 8th*! This project will be an opportunity for those with severe ME to showcase their artwork (whether it be writing, photography, drawing, singing, or any other medium that illustrates their talents) with multiple ways to participate based on a person’s energy levels.

The Severe ME Artists Project will feature a video compilation and online gallery of written work. The video and online gallery will be shared with the community around Severe ME Day. Our goal is for people to be able to watch the video and read through the gallery when it is best for them. 

THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT HAS PASSED! WE WILL BE DOING MORE ART EVENTS IN THE FUTURE!

Watch out for the video and online gallery to be released near Severe ME Day!

Art is foundational to activism. It provides a way to tell a story that connects us on a deeper level. It goes beyond the rational and connects us to the emotional. That is why #MEAction plans to continue featuring the amazing artists in our community year-round! We are excited to introduce the Severe ME Artists Project for 2021 and look forward to introducing more art-focused events in the coming months.

*Severe ME Day on August 8th was started by the 25% group. We are grateful for their work and very eager to support artists in the severe ME community.

    Hi there, I have Severe M.E. & would love to submit photos of my art work, but I’m having a lot of problems attaching them to the form. Is there another way I can send you my submission? Thanks, love & Solidarity, Mhari

    I wrote a song about ME. I have 2 documents to attach: One document is the poetry/lyrics only. The other document is audio only of me singing it. Do I only have 2 minutes if I create a video of me singing it? …and therefore I would only share a short excerpt of the song? Just a bit confused about how long time-wise my song is allowed to be. Gee thanks! can’t wait. Luv, Christine Hughes 30-plus years with ME. Now many years with severe ME. Smiles

  5. Hi! I too would love to share my artwotk but have problems uploading picures. Can I send them to you in some other way?

  6. I haven’t been officially diagnosed with ME, but I think many can understand the struggle of getting doctors to believe you. Can I still submit?

    Thank you for your time

  7. Hello, I have severe M.E. I would like to share a poem that I wrote about M.E but I don’t know how to do. Can I send it to an email address ? Thank you in advance.
    Love from Rome

  8. Hi, Is it to late to do this? I have severe M.E. and I paint when I can. You can look at my instagram or fb-page artforsurvivalbysus

  9. Worked to get the info the others above have asked before the due date but no one answered. How to support this project if the supportive communication to make this happen is unheard?

    So many more creatives, and the details supporting their work, could have been included in this year’s project.

    Please better assist those who want to create a strong database of educational art for us, all of us together.
