The Boobs: Art for Breast Cancer book and accompanying short film aim to catch the attention of women of all ages and backgrounds. The Boobs: Art for Breast Cancer project brings together hundreds of brilliant creatives from around the world to raise money and awareness for breast cancer charities. To promote the book is a short animated film, another equally astounding congregation of creatives — this time entirely female — brought together by Nexus Studios in collaboration with female artist community She Drew That. Directed by Hannah Lau-Walker, the film was made by a team of 14 female animators, using artwork by 14 female artists featured in the book, and exec produced by Julia Parfitt with an all-female production team at Nexus, with a soundtrack by composers Neighbourhood Jukebox at Sister Music.

Breast Cancer | Breast Cancer Information & Overview
Art for Cure, one of the leading art-related charities in the UK, is taking its biennial exhibition online this year to continue its vital fundraising work for breast cancer care. Originally scheduled to take place at Glemham Hall, a beautiful Elizabethan country house in Suffolk, over the VE Day weekend, Art for Cure has, in just a few short weeks, managed to do what many organisations have been forced to do since the coronavirus outbreak — pivot. Entirely through voluntary action, this unique, arts-based charity has created one of the freshest art platforms in the UK, with more than 1, works created by UK artists carefully curated into a brand new online gallery. Usually, the Glemham Hall biennial exhibition kicks-off the culture and social scene in Suffolk, with Belinda and sculpture curator Nick Crocker bringing together a diverse and exciting collection of contemporary art.
Art Therapy for People With Cancer
Art therapy is a fairly new field in medicine. Yet art—whether viewing it or creating it—has long been known to have healing effects. For people living with cancer , this therapy may be helpful in many ways. In addition to providing a relaxing escape against the backdrop of treatment anxiety and fear for the future, painting or drawing may help you understand the myriad of emotions that can go along with a diagnosis of cancer.
Data sources: Published articles and books, personal experiences. Data synthesis: Art has been used to educate and promote the expression of emotions. Using an art exhibit as the central feature, a planning committee composed of staff members and volunteers developed a repertoire of activities to improve cancer awareness and provide support to cancer survivors. Visitor and staff reactions to the event were profound. Conclusions: Art can capture the most intimate and personal aspects of the cancer experience.
