YEAR 3 brings a FREE, EIGHT WEEK Online Creative Wellness Program for Spinal Arachnoiditis Survivors
FUNDRAISING TARGET FOR Year 3 $18, 189.69~ without this funding the The Art For Arachnoiditis Project will be closing this year.
Why this amount? Because I want to keep up with my intention to do this project justice...to do it right...and to facilitate an environment for healing which allows us to develop Sustainable Independent Wellness. Quality service requires adequate resources. The most recent draft copy of the Fiscal Summary is attached as a pdf for your review.
New to the project? Visit THE PROJECT PAGE to see what this is all about.
To minimize the cost to the Arachnoditis Survivors for shipping, insurance, and other usual exhibition expenses; There IS a $5 registration fee for the Survivors' Art Exhibit to assist with the cost of making prints and processing digital entries for display. Other than that one annual exhibit fee; All Spinal Arachnoditis Survivors registered receive Project Benefits for FREE since the project began.
In addition to providing our Third Annual Survivors' Art Exhibit featuring Art by Spinal Arachnoiditis Survivors from around the world, Providing Existing Independent Publication Services for Survivors who would like to tell their side of the story, and maintaining the FREE Healing Art Activities and Resources on the Website for Survivors; a portion of these funds will be used to Provide an Eight Week Online Creative Wellness Program to 15 Arachnoiditis Survivors. AFTER we achieve this funding goal; The class will be offered FREE to the first Fifteen Spinal Arachnoiditis Survivors who sign up.
IF WE REACH THE FUNDING GOAL~ ON December 15, 2016 ~The offer to sign up for the class will be posted in the FREE to the public content in my newsfeed.
This FREE resource will be provided to these Fifteen Spinal Arachnoiditis Survivors during YEAR 3 [Nov.1, 2016-July 30, 2017] on a First-Come-First-Served Basis.
The project is supported by Me, Generous Sponsors, and by Private Funding from people like You.

"Art is our one true global language. It knows no nation, it favors no race, and it acknowledges no class. It speaks to our need to reveal, heal, and transform. It transcends our ordinary lives and lets us imagine what is possible."~Richard Kamler
"At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are an artist, you are a healer; a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foundation of your work and its integrity."
~Rachel Naomi Remen, MD
