Eye Contact : An insight into Autism
How do we look at disability? And how do we represent disability in visual and social culture? Why do some stories exist outside of mainstream narratives? And how will the visibility of such marginalised narratives affect and contribute to collective thinking?
Colours Centre for Learning in collaboration with The Be A Smile Project, a research project, investigating autism and society presents Eye Contact; An insight into autism.
Eye Contact; An insight into autism is an art exhibition of students works that questions how our gaze as a society is informed, and what it means to be human. It aims to mark a shift towards inclusion and breaking down the boundaries that society willingly and unwillingly places on those who are differently abled.
Running alongside the exhibition is a public programme of events such as discussions with members of the local community and is open to all. There will also be performances in the gallery space.
Discussions (schedule to be announced)
– How can we facilitate the inclusion of marginalised communities in society, through the tools of art and media.
– In conversation: life and growing up with a differently abled sibling.
– Accepting autism: everyday people who have opened new doors.
