Severe ME Artist Project 2022 — Gallery

#MEAction is excited to announce our Severe ME Artist Project 2022— Gallery! The Severe ME Artist Project 2022 features work from those within the severe ME community and is in recognition of Severe ME Day on August 8th.

We had a wonderful response to this project with over 150 submissions! We are blown away by the response – thank you!

This project was created with an idea to allow those with severe ME to share their artwork with the larger community and provide an opportunity to be SEEN!

We also want to acknowledge the grief that happens for those unable to practice their art due to illness and those who have had to change the way they practice their art.

On this page, you will find the Writers Gallery, a link to the video compilation, and the many art images submitted. There is a lot on this page, so please take your time and come back often!

*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.

  1. Thank you.
    Two words that don’t come close to expressing my gratitude for your gifts to us.
    Remember what Jen Brea says: every day living with this illness is an act of defiance, of disruption, of activism, of love.
    You are our strongest, our punk rock rebels, our climbers of Mount Everest.
    Thank you.
