#BedFest is a virtual concert to showcase the experience of living with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as expressed through song, spoken word, poetry or silent expression in the form of a short video clip or photo. #BedFest premieres on Saturday, May 6th.
#MEAction will showcase your submissions on our website as part of a virtual concert on May 6th. We will also host a BlueJeans call for participants to discuss their work, the act of expressing oneself while suffering with ME, and for the community to share the moment together.
Send in submissions by April 30th to email@example.com. See submission guidelines below.
Noa from Germany sent in this beautiful song she wrote called, “Sometimes I cry,” for #Bedfest, which she performed on a tenor ukulele.
As part of the festival, we are also partnering with musician Kaeley Pruitt-Hamm who has recorded an EP Hi From Pillows from her bed. As part of #BedFest, Kaeley will re-release her music video, “Believe Her,” to include faces of people with ME from around the world. We want to represent the diversity of people with ME and welcome submissions from all ages, races and genders.
To be part of the re-mix of Kaeley’s music video, send in a still photo of yourself in bed holding a sign that says #BelieveME or #BelieveHer by April 30th. Send in submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
