We are delighted to announce that The Great brainstrust Create-Off calendar has arrived in our shop and is available to order here – but be quick, we don’t expect them to hang around for long!
Featuring artwork created by the very talented 12 winners of our The Great brainstrust Create-Off competition, which we ran earlier this year, all money raised from the calendar sales will go directly to supporting people with a brain tumour and their loved ones, making a huge difference to those who need it the most.
How it all came about:
Throughout Brain Tumour Awareness Month in March 2021, we joined our community as we focused on the importance of self-care. We chose to embrace the use of art and creativity to unwind, relax and re-charge. As a fun activity to encourage everyone to get involved, we decided to launch a brand new competition: The Great brainstrust Create-Off, to celebrate the creativity of our community.
With so many wonderful pieces of artwork to choose from it seemed like a lovely idea to create the first ever brainstrust charity calendar, and we reached out to our lovely friend and artist, Chris Field, who kindly offered to be a judge. Chris himself has a brain tumour, and his passion for art and connection to the cause helped to inspire the making of this competition.
