Scottish Autism - Relationships before & during the pandemic
When: 12:00 - 12:30, Wednesday 14 July 2021 Where: Zoom call, online This event is being organised by Scottish Autism
It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
A live exploration of key principles of creative co-production exploring autistic people's relationships before and during the pandemic.
Scottish Autism invites you to join its live webinar with Dr Georgia Pavlopoulou and Jon Adams to hear more about Flow Unlocked, a creative autistic led collaborative project which highlights the importance of relationships to autistic people.
The intense sensitivity with which autistic people relate to the world is rarely recognised, let alone celebrated. The Flow Unlocked collective has been reflecting on personal and sensory relationships that have sustained them during the pandemic, as well as those they have missed. These reflections are revealed through poetry, photography, drawing and film.
The visual art is created by co-artists Jon Adams and Briony Campbell, in collaboration with the Flow Unlocked participants and Georgia Pavlopoulou, University College London lecturer and autism researcher. Her work on autistic mental health and relationships is at the root of Flow Unlocked.
Traditionally, projects are made about autistic people not with them, but Flow Unlocked breaks the mould by redefining autistic narratives from the perspective of lived experience. Scottish Autism invites you to explore the ways Flow Unlocked aims to ditch damaging stereotypes that exist about autistic people, and celebrate their diverse talents and unique perspectives.
