Susannah Cahalan, author of Brain on Fire, chats to her fellow Encephalitis Society Ambassador Mathew Bose about the Twitter Art Exhibit, her pet dog, Gus, and how the drawing of a clock helped a doctor diagnose her with autoimmune encephalitis.

This is a fun interview between two friends. Enjoy! 

What is the Twitter Art Exhibit?

Since its launch by artist David Sandum in 2010, the Twitter Art Exhibit has raised thousands of pounds for charity with exhibitions being held in the USA, UK, Australia and Norway.

This year, thanks to our Ambassador Mathew Bose, the exhibit is supporting the Encephalitis Society.

Several hundred artists from around the world have generously submitted original postcard-sized pieces of art with proceeds going to our lucky charity.

All art is available for £30.

The Twitter Art Exhibit takes place at the Hiscox Building, Peasholme Green, York YO1 7PR on Sunday, 26th June, from 10am to 4pm.
