We Are All Neurodiverse: New perspectives, new definitions
Tuesday 17 January 2017, 6-8pm.
Attenborough Arts Centre, Leicester.
Free, but booking essential. Book here.
Threshold Studios invite you to imagine a future in which diversity in arts and culture has been forgotten. What do we lose without the contributions and perspectives of diverse groups? What happens when our arts ecology only represents a narrow spectrum of society – and what the might the impacts be on quality and innovation in the arts and media landscape in the UK and beyond? What role does technology play in bringing authentic voices to the fore, and how is the digital revolution helping communities to redefine themselves?
Join the panel of creatives trailblazing a new path of visibility and representation for artists who experience the world differently – through Autism, Dyslexia or ADHD, for example.
What are the unique contributions and perspectives that neurodivergent artists bring to arts experiences, and what role does technology have to play?
The panel will be chaired by Susan Jones, published writer and researcher, and joined by Jon Adams, artist and National Autistic Society Cultural Ambassador and Mike Layward, Artistic Director at DASH Arts.
