How your participation benefits the pain community
By being a part of this unique art show, Pain Ambassadors and Advocates will have the opportunity for their hidden talents to be on display for an entire month, and not just any month, during the KNOWvember educational awareness campaign! Your work will captivate chronic pain in a creative way, helping to break the barriers and societal stigmas surrounding pain through art and self-expression.

In addition, you will be contributing to the pain community through the donation of your piece of art. Pieces will be sold for the sole purpose of enhancing the work carried out by U.S. Pain Foundation and 540WMain.

All work will be available for purchase from anyone who visits the artistic space, with half of the proceeds to be shared by both U.S. Pain and 540WMain.
