#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.
