‘HOW DO YOU C ME NOW?’ Exhibition Launch Dates Released

Since June 2016, Caring Matters Now has been working in partnership with the world-renowned photographer Brock Elbank to create a series of positive portrait images featuring some of the most inspiring children and adults affected by CMN from around the world, representing 13 countries on 5 continents.

The series of 30 images entitled ‘HOW DO YOU C MNOW?’ aims to raise positive global awareness of Congenital Melanocytic Naevus (CMN).  We want to give a clear message to the world – to love the skin you are in!

The ‘HOW DO YOU C MNOW?’ series will be exhibited at the gallery@oxoOxo Tower Wharf, London.
The doors will officially open to the general public for the first time on Thursday 14th March, 10am.  The exhibition will be open daily until Sunday 24th March, with an expected daily footfall of 3000 people passing by the glass-fronted gallery.

We expect to receive a high level of media coverage in the build-up to the launch and throughout the duration of the exhibition.  Furthermore, the HOW DO YOU C MNOW? promotional poster will be showcased across London, in high footfall areas such as outside the Southbank Centre, in Gabriel’s Wharf and Waterloo Station.  The promotional poster will also be showcased on a huge digital billboard for the duration of the exhibition, overlooking Waterloo Bridge.

Why not visit the HOW DO YOU C MNOW? exhibition during the 10-day period?
You will be warmly welcomed by our wonderful charity representatives.

    I hope this helps kids get to grow up and live their lives being normal. Being treated like they are just like everyone else. I have lived with my facial CMN and the remnants of it for 43 years now and it’s been a rough existence. I just wanted to be normal and beautiful. Hopefully others will have that chance now even though it’s too late for me.

    This makes me very happy as a young woman with CMN. I am 23 and have always struggled with self-esteem and confidence. From the age of 18, I have covered some of my birthmarks with tattoos, of which I am extremely proud of as they have meaning behind them. But this gave me more confidence as tattoos were looked at more positively than my cmn. Most people would stare and make nasty comments towards my birthmarks, yet my tattoos were embraced. I am so pleased that young people and children with cmn have a platform on social media with such fantastic representatives from all over the world, so people are more aware of it and understand that it doesn’t change a person. I hope young people feel more confident growing up, and embrace their difference rather than hiding it, like I did.
