Starting March with a Bloggy Project Update from Sheila

Things here have been REALLY busy in the Art For Arachnoiditis Project Operations Office.

The Fiscal Sponsorship contract with the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) has been finalized. Soon our project page will be live there. I will share that link as soon as I have it.

To make it easier for Arachnoiditis Survivors to find us, The Art For Arachnoiditis Project has now been upgraded to a VIP Listing at The Wellness Universe  Online Directory of Resources to Expand Your Well-Being.

” The Mission at the Wellness Universe: The seven areas of wellness are: Emotional, Environmental, Intellectual, Occupational, Physical, Social & Spiritual. From people offering support, to products that improve the betterment of your life, the environment, animals, awareness and education, we here at The Wellness Universe strive to find the best of those resources and list them in a directory for you.”

I have been doing a lot of PR & Prep (lesson plans, creating our Healing Power of Art Presentation, seeking product sponsors, and writing our invitations) for the exhibit opening reception and workshop.

Registered Arachnoiditis Survivors do not have to pay a fee to attend the workshop. Limited space is available. Please be sure to register. Survivors Planning to attend the Exhibit & Opening Reception and/or Workshop, please contact the Studio; to register and let us know any necessary accommodations you may require at the Fountain Arts Center in Belmont, NY.                                                                                         Workshop Registration Deadline: March 20th.

The prints of your entries look amazing!  I have just ordered all of the frames and mat boards. I hope the delivery truck can get here. The snow and slush is STILL coming down!

Don’t forget! I have also been processing your forms and photos so check out the list of  registrations/entries.  My creative spirit was assigned the task of designing the  digital collages for the Arachnoiditis In Real Life digital photo series while my inner clerk was doing project administrative tasks (conquering the bottom line). Did I mention the “Clerk” (at tax time) and the “Creative Spirit” have to share the same brain

With the “Best Book Warrior” ? ….who has been revising and recovering from her own revisions to the publication agenda for the Book Project: Still Standing, Sometimes. She is  determined to make this publication a valuable and reputable resource for Arachnoiditis Survival, Awareness,  and Prevention.

THIS WEEK: Drawing Survivor Portraits will resume between organizing (finding) community volunteers to help paint the Map of the Survivors. As an incentive, volunteers receive B~Arter Bucks from SheilaLynnK Art Studio for participating in the Map-making project. Did you know there are over 186 locations from around the world registered to be displayed on the map so far?

Thanks so much to Linda Funsch! She is putting the Arachnoiditis Awareness ribbon stickers on all of the map flag pins. Each location will have it’s own pin with an Awareness Ribbon. The map is scheduled to be finished in time for display at the exhibit.

TECH UPGRADES ARE HERE! I am patiently waiting for the “Tech Support Crew Chief” to install them.

My own personal aching arachnoiditis entity is not hesitating to add her voice to these proceedings. She attacks at some of the most inopportune moments in the middle of very important tasks. However, I am partially to blame as I have been pushing myself into too much vertical activity (she is very vocal in her objection to this) while waiting for tech upgrades that will allow me to resume doing more of the computer work from a horizontal position. ….did I mention I am also the tech support crew chief at the Art For Arachnoiditis Project?
