What got you started in celebrating spoonie art?
I had started to become more active on Twitter and wanted a way to connect with other chronically ill artists. After cruising
#disabledartist, I decided to start my own hashtag. I was inspired by other people doing similar work, ような @DisVisibility と @SpoonieCult. I also learned some ideas from other hashtags that spoonies were using to connect, ような #spooniesnaps と #chroniclife.
What’s your favorite piece you’ve been able to feature lately?
So far we haven’t featured any particular artist. The hashtag itself functions as a gallery, where artists choose for themselves what to share on Gallery Night. I used to try to retweet all of the original artwork on
#ArtfulSpoons from my personal account, but now I will use the official @ArtfulSpoons account to do so. #ArtfulSpoons benefits from participation, both from the artists who participate as well as the people who browse, ような, and retweet the artwork. People can follow @ArtfulSpoons on Twitter for more updates.
What kinds of changes has featuring spoonie art made in the lives of the artists you’ve featured?
#ArtfulSpoons encourages people to make more art, and helps artists connect to one another.
What tips would you give to others who want to start organizations to help others?
I do not know what advice I can give, since I am still learning myself. I can say that asking for advice is definitely a good idea. What I do with
#ArtfulSpoons is relatively simple, but I still needed a lot of help from other more experienced organizers to get started.
The most important lesson I have learned from this journey has been, sometimes when you have a good idea, other people will show up and help you make it a reality. I have also seen that this is not always the case. A lot of people have to collaborate to make something like this work.
What’s the next step in “becoming a superhero” for you guys?
Thanks for chatting, Alex!
I know some of the SuperPeeps will want to check out the hashtags linked above, and try to support some of the art of folks with chronic diseases. If you’d like to read about a superhero with multiple sclerosis, 得られる Origins: the Guardian Anthology over at Indiegogo.
