Creative Corner: Raising Awareness of Cluster Through Arte Cluster#2

Arte Cluster is a project founded to raise awareness of cluster headache through art. Arte Cluster Project is an independent project founded and managed by Claudio Geraci, a chronic sufferer, and Francisca Mesa, a supporter.

Based in Germany, artists from around the globe support the project with their art, some with cluster and others without. The group was created as an open community, to represent the whole network of people who want to improve the condition of patients with this horrible disease. Video, picture, poetry & music are all highlighted by Arte Cluster.

This artwork was contributed by Dana W for Arte Cluster. It is titled “Migraine.” I’d love to hear your thoughts on what this intricate and haunting image says to you.

Thank you to Arte Cluster and their artists for allowing us to display some of their artists on Golden Graine. More art from this amazing group will be highlighted in the coming months.
