It’s always great to make new connections with other artists and creative types who balance their artistic practice with chronic illness or pain.
So I decided to try and set up a blog ring to see if I/we can grow a network of artists.
The Chronic Artists blog ring is now up and accepting new members.
If you are an artist, photographer, writer, sculptor, poet, musician or artisan with a chronic health condition or chronic pain please consider joining. Sign up is a simple and you just need to add a simple text link to your blog.
I’ve also created a new Chronic Artists blog. Here I hope to feature some of the artists from the blog ring (once we have some members to feature of course!) and to nuture our network.
This isn’t an attempt to put myself at the centre of things but rather something I’ve been looking for and not found in over a year.
On the blog I’d like to look at some of the challenges facing chronic artists, as well as some of the ways in which it influences our work. My hope is to invite guest bloggers to talk about their work and maybe look at specific themes. Certainly to provide some exposure for artists who so often have limited resources.
