Marie Leblanc, an artist from Winnipeg who is living with MCS/ES herself, is compiling information and statements to put into an MCS awareness project. There are two ideas to contribute to.
The easier one is to share shorter personal statements about your life with MCS/ES and related environmentally linked health conditions, which will be projected onto walls in a way similar to the photo below.
The other project involves answering 6 questions:
1. Have you been officially diagnosed?
2. How do your symptoms impact your life?
3. What is a typical day like for you?
4. What would you require for a better quality of life?
5. What have you learned about yourself since living with MCS?
6. How do you keep hope alive and move forward?
You can use Environmental Illness/Multiple Chemical Sensitivities/Chemical Injury/Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome/Environmental Hyper-Sensitivity or any other name you have been given for Environmental Sensitivities.
Marie would like permission to include your name or initials, and location (city and or province/state).
If you wish to have your photo included, please send one.
You can contact Marie via the fb post above or by sending an email to her at:
toxicnomad911 @ gmail . com
(please remove the spaces around the @ and the ./dot )
Please be respectful and only use this email for project submissions.
Marie’s 2016 contribution to the Canary in the Coal Mine project at the Martha Street Studio in Winnipeg is mentioned here.
Please try to contribute something, no matter where in the world you live! The more we speak up, the more we can change the world!
Thank you so much from Marie and linda!
