About this event

Creating is often an art of solitude, but can be energizing to connect with others around a creative practice! Join the Chronic Market, an online platform for creatives who suffer from ME/CFS, for a free-form online creative session. Bring whatever project you want to work on, be it visual art, writing, crafting or cooking, it's all welcome! I'll have some creative prompts to get the ideas flowing for anyone who needs it. There will be no pressure to share your work or story, though that will be welcome too.

While selling through the Chronic Market's online marketplace is only open to people with ME/CFS, this event is open to all, so feel free to share on! Link to join will be provided upon registration.
