1:26 The Art of Epilepsy in Boston
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
Join Hidden Truths Project and CURE for the 1:26 The Art of Epilepsy reception and art exhibit. This event honors Dr. Steven Schachter, Chief Academic Officer and Program Leader of Neurotechnology at the Consortia for Improving Medicine with Innovation & Technology (CIMIT) and Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, as well as CURE Grantee Dr. Kevin Staley, Chief of Pediatric Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Joseph P. and Rose F. Kennedy Professor of Child Neurology and Mental Retardation, Harvard Medical School.
This will be an evening of inspired artwork created by artists, who span the globe linked by the common thread of epilepsy. The reception and art exhibition are being held at the newly renovated EpiCenter of Boston. At 1:26 The Art of Epilepsy, you will learn more about this nationwide art event, the fight against epilepsy stigma, and why epilepsy research is so critically needed in the quest for a cure.
The exhibit will focus on epilepsy-based art that reflects the seizure state, the psychosocial impact of living with epilepsy, and the technology involved in evaluating these individuals, including the multiple MRIs, EEGs and other diagnostic tests.
The goal of the night is to provide a platform for this diverse population of individuals to let their voices be heard and their stories told. Although each of these artists stories’ are unique, their works become a collective force to combat the injustices, discrimination, and marginalization directed against these individuals, many who continue to live in the shadows of this diagnosis.
