Discover – Autistica

Autistica Discover Conference 2019

I am excited to announce that I will be showing new work at the 2019 Autistica Discover conference.

‘Discover is the first national network for autism research, connecting researchers with autistic people, families and professionals.’ – Autistica

The 2019 Autistica Discover conference is being held at the Reading University on the 27th of June and tickets can be purchased here.

The work I will be showcasing at Discover 2019 will bring to life aspects of my own ‘self’. The works will be a truly intimate self-portrait; exploring narratives of communication, functionality and the basic human need for empathy.
