Brain Cancer Got Me Thinking

To mark Brain Tumour Awareness Month and to showcase the remarkable creativity of the brain tumour community, the Patient Family Advisory Council of the BC Cancer Agency, in partnership with the Visual Space Gallery in Vancouver, BC, invited art submissions from anyone, across Canada, affected by a brain tumour.

Brain Cancer Got Me Thinking Art Exhibit PosterA public exhibition will take place in October, Brain Tumour Awareness Month, showcasing art submitted by those selected to take part, including ANYONE affected by a brain tumour  – patients, family members, health care professionals, adults, children. 
All submissions that met the deadline of July 31, 2015, have become part of a slide show to be viewed at the gallery and housed on this page of the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada website, see below.
As part of the slide show mentioned above, we also included some quotes from the community of Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. We had asked the question: "What does your brain tumour mean to you?". You can find the responses to that question scattered throughout the slideshow, as a way to honour those affected by a brain tumour who may not have otherwise taken part in the exhibition.
Pieces selected via a jury process will be included in the public exhibition, October 7-13, 2015 12pm - 6pm at the Visual Space Gallery, Vancouver, BC. Works will be sold at the above exhibition. Note the gallery is closed October 11-12, 2015
Please watch for tweets about the exhibition using #BrainCancerGMT.
