AYA STORYART SERIES: YOU HAVE A STORY TO TELL
Calling all young adults ages 18-39 with a cancer diagnosis

Help create a collection of oil paintings based on stories of the people behind young adult cancer – Your story!

YOU HAVE A STORY TO TELL
About
– Cancer
– Anything but cancer
– An impactful memory
– Something funny
– Lessons you've learned
– Places you've been
– Your family and friends
Most importantly, about YOU!

WHAT HAPPENS:
1. You record & submit a 5 minute story using Voice Memo (iOS) or Voice Recorder (Android)
2. Artist TeRina makes a video of her painting something from your story while your story plays in the background.
3. You are given the link to the YouTube video and get to keep the painting!

See some examples on TeRina's website: https://www.terinascia.com/painting-stories

Ah I have not seen that! What an awesome collaboration opportunity. Art in all forms is so healing. I'll have to think of some story ideas.
