1:26 The Art of Epilepsy 2019: Call to Artists

Now in our 8th year, the Art of Epilepsy is once again expanding our outreach to Engage, Empower, and Educate through Art, about the hidden truths of living with epilepsy.  This expansion is made possible through the creative ingenuity and fantastic support from our global community of artists living with the challenges of epilepsy.

We need your creative edge once again!

Art calls are open to all national and international professional and amateur artists. All art mediums will be considered in this call for submissions, from photography, wall sculpture, ceramics, fabric, mixed media, all paintings and drawings including, oil, acrylic, pastels, ink, graphite, etc.

Interested artists apply here:

Artist Participation Form: Newport Beach, CA; Minneapolis, MN

Artist Participation Form: Boston, MA; San Francisco, CA

Please take note of the deadline for submitting applications.

We are extremely pleased to once again collaborate with Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE) for the inaugural Boston 1:26 The Art of Epilepsy, on May 10th, 2019.  The exhibit will focus on epilepsy-based art that reflects the seizure state, the technology involved in evaluating these individuals, including the multiple MRI’s, EEG’s and testing these individuals undergo, and the psycho-social impact of living with this condition.

We welcome a new collaboration with the Child Neurology Foundation (CNF) and Child Neurology Society (CNS) for our annual event in Newport Beach, California on September 21, 2019, and in Minneapolis in October.  The focus of these two exhibits is transition of care of individuals with epilepsy, as they grow from childhood into early adulthood.  An often neglected aspect of care in this population, it is an area of vital importance in the arduous journey of becoming an independent adult.  The exhibition is composed of a collage of work to reflect the stories of children, teens, and adults during this transformational journey.

In late Fall, Hidden Truths Project will host 1:26 The Art of Epilepsy in San Francisco in support of epilepsy research being conducted at the University of California San Francisco Epilepsy Center.  The exhibit will showcase some of the work from our younger artists attending the Coehlo Epilepsy Youth Summer Camp in Northern California.

Hidden Truths Project looks forward to these exciting changes in 2019 as we expand these individual’s voices to the national and international stage!
