*DEADLINE for entry is 11 September!* The National Brain Appeal’s art fundraiser A Letter in Mind is back, asking artists to get creative on an envelope! The National Brain Appeal is delighted to invite you to take part in our seventh annual art fundraising exhibition A Letter in Mind – Everyday ThingsThis year we are celebrating the importance of ‘Everyday Things’, and are delighted to invite you to create an envelope artwork based on this theme. Your 'Everyday Thing' could be a favourite mug, a much-loved bag or a well-worn chair. It might be your local community, a favourite view or your daily music practice. These ‘assistants’ help us navigate our everyday lives. However predictable and supposedly routine these ‘things’ are it’s often doing, using or seeing them that gives us time and space to reflect.  

We already have some fantastic high-profile creatives who are coming on board. These include designer Zandra Rhodes; artists Chantal Joffe, Ishbel Myserscough, Morag Myerscough, Gill Rocca, Mark Dion, Bill Mundy, Mark Entwisle; illustrators Tim Hopgood and Polly Dunbar; architect Laurie Chetwood; comedian and presenter Jo Brand; journalist and presenter Andrew Marr; actors Kevin Eldon and Sophie Thompson; and musicians Terry Hall and Justin Roberston. In recent years Tracey Emin, Grayson Perry, Antony Gormley, Olafur Eliasson and David Shrigley have donated artworks.  

The exhibition is currently due to take place from 5-8 November at the Oxo Gallery, London, and on the charity’s online gallery. All artworks will be exhibited anonymously, priced identically at £85. The identity of the artist is revealed at the end of the exhibition, once the artwork has sold. Proceeds will go towards supporting vital projects at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology.
