Autism Reimagined

Thursday 24 May, 6pm
Djanogly Theatre and Performing Arts Studio

2 hours including Q&A and Autism Café

Suitable for Parents, Carers & Professionals with direct experience of Autism

An exploration of how autistic people perceive, experience, and communicate differently, through art and drama. This unique programme includes two short films: Now I see the World, following children’s experience of the ‘Imagining Autism’ project at the University of Kent; and Playing Apart, exploring autism from a uniquely female perspective.

The Autism Café which follows will provide practical tips to creatively engage with autism in the home, school and workplace.

Presented by researchers from the University of Kent with lived experience of autism and an autistic live artist.
