Inspire the world in fighting cancer with your art

CANCER: Never Give up 2022 encourages artists to provide artworks that display their thought and feeling about the incurable disease, cancer. The selected artworks will be published in The Book of Arts and showcased in an international online group exhibition by Gallerium.

October is the month of awareness for breast cancer and liver cancer, two of the most common cancers globally, and October is somehow linked with cancer awareness in our minds through all the campaigns for breast cancer with its famous pink ribbon.

As the world slowly works its way to get free from months of a global pandemic with no immediate cure, we invite you to join us in honoring the cancer fighters and survivors, remembering those we've lost to the disease, and supporting the progress to defeat cancer performed by medical teams.

Now in its second year, for CANCER: Never Give up 2022, we are looking for your artistic interpretation of the incurable disease, how your life has been affected because of it, your feelings for the special ones that are lost, the way it helped us to forget our differences and appreciate the life and harmony more often. 

Let your art be a vessel to spread awareness about cancer, share your emotions, honor the patients, praise the memory of the beloved people that are not among us anymore, and support all the challenges and efforts in finding a cure and better treatments.

All representational or abstract interpretations related to the Cancer: Never Give Up concept are accepted.

Artists working in any medium can submit their art for this dual exhibition and publication opportunity.
