Elizabeth Jameson, ABOUT US

Event date: 
Sunday, February 23, 2020 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Hicklebee's is excited to host a special presentation by quadriplegic artist and innovator Elizabeth Jameson along with Catherine Kudlick and other authors represented in ABOUT US, a compilation of personal essays from the New York Times written by people with varying disabilities--from spinal cord injury, stroke, Parkinson's Disease, cancer, and others. The authors share -some with humor--their wisdom, perseverance, sorrow and frustrations. Join us for stories from the authors followed by a Q&A session.

Elizabeth Jameson is an artist specializing in the intersection of art and science. As a person living with Multiple Sclerosis, she uses neuro-technology to transform her brain scans into a vibrant, unique form of portraiture that celebrates the imperfect body and brain. Jameson collaborates with scientists, health care providers, and those living with illness to spark conversations and deepen the complex narrative of disability and disease.

Her most recent project, #FacingMS, uses art, storytelling and technology to access the untapped potential of time spent in waiting rooms. Her work is shown at major universities, hospitals, and neuroscience centers throughout the world. You can watch her inspiring TEDx Talk here.
