Following the success of Creative for a Second (www.creativeforasecond.com), Melbourne artist and designer I & The Others (a.k.a. Kirrily Anderson) has just launched her next CFS/ME project, Creative for a Second or Two.

Inspired by the 1000 Journals Project, Kirrily is organising to send blank journals around the world to people with ME/CFS/CFIDS for them to fill up with anything they like - artwork, thoughts, photos, found objects, deep dark secrets!

Each person will have a journal for two weeks and then post it on to the next person on the list (there will be a mailing list in the back of each journal).

Should a contributor not be well enough to contribute anything within the two weeks they can add their name to the bottom of the list so the journal can come back to them, but it must keep moving. (The project is about expressing - not making a work of art necessarily, so even during the time of a crash, some frustration may be expressed in some way on the pages!)

There will be photo updates on the Creative For A Second Facebook group (feel free to join - just search for Creative For A Second under the groups section) Contributors can scan or photograph the journal while they have it - even make a movie, and upload it to the group so everyone can see how the journals are progressing!

After 12 months or so of circulating all the journals will be returned to Kirrily and she will take them apart and have all the pages on display as part of an exhibition, starting on Awareness Day (May 12). With finances permitting a book will also be published.

This is a project for anyone and everyone with this debilitating illness - not just "artists" - we all have creative bones within us! For more information, or to register your interest (just send an email with your postal address), email Kirrily directly at creativeforasecond@gmail.com
