#BedFest is a virtual festival to showcase the art and experience of people living with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME)* as expressed through song, imagery and poetry.
Visual artist and #BedFest contributor, Kate Stewart, writes, “I will always be a poet and an artist first, and an M.E. patient second. This is even if I never finish another piece outside of my mind and in my unfortunate real world."
#Bedfest was inspired by musician Kaeley Pruitt-Hamm, who struggled through the limitations of her ME to record an EP from her bed called Hi From Pillows, which she will debut in May. As part of #Bedfest, Kaeley has also re-released her music video, “Believe Her,” to include faces of people with ME from around the world.
*ME is also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or ME/CFS.
