N[ART] : narcolepsy art

make art. advocate sleep.

- Wisdom of Confucius



'Dreams prove us creative artists, natural poets capable of imagery unbounded

by the cognitive restrictions of waking life.

[words + wisdom from The Natural Artistry of Dreams,

a book by Jill Mellick, 1996.]

The N[ART] EXHIBITION is a collection of artwork, writing, poetry and music that expresses the realm between sleep and wakefulness as experienced by those with narcolepsy or idiopathic hypersomnia. It is held each October at the national Narcolepsy Network Annual Conference.

N[ART] : narcolepsy art is a free-spirited effort that strengthens social support and connection among those with narcolepsy through shared experience while also encouraging sleep advocacy and expanding awareness to the general public.

"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated."
