Organised by Epilepsy Action Australia (EAA), the largest provider of epilepsy education and support services in Australia, and 333 Art Projects, the ‘Art in Action’ initiative has brought together some of Australia’s most talented and celebrated contemporary artists, with the aim of raising much-needed funds and awareness for epilepsy.

Names involved include: Jason Benjamin, Lucy Culliton, Elisabeth Cummings, David Griggs, Jasper Knight, Euan MacLeod, Guy Maestri, Robert Malherbe, Reg Mombassa, Idris Murphy, Peter O’Doherty, Paul Ryan, Luke Sciberras, Wendy Sharpe, Alexander Talbot Rice, and Ken Whisson.

‘This is an amazing opportunity to purchase an original piece of art from some of the country’s most renowned contemporary artists, whilst contributing to a cause that impacts so many. Funds raised will enable us to provide essential free services to meet the needs of people with epilepsy,’ explained EAA CEO Carol Ireland.

According to EAA, epilepsy is the world’s most common serious brain disorder and a condition that will affect over 800,000 Australians in their lifetime. Characterised by seizures, it can affect anyone at any stage in life, regardless of age, gender, level of education, culture or background.

All proceeds from cocktail event ticket sales and a portion of funds from art sales will go directly to EAA.
