Join us on Wednesday 15 November from 6:30-8pm to learn an overview of what neurodiversity means, and to hear from three neurodivergent creatives about their individual practices. Chaired by Jennifer Gilbert of Art et al., Sonia Boué, Isobel Smith and Natasha Trotman each share their processes and experiences, including adaptations they feel are required to sustain their practice today. This is a hybrid event, with one of the speakers appearing from their home, and time for questions at the end.

Please note the talk is now fully booked for in-person attendance but you can still book your place to attend via Zoom  here:

About the speakers

Natasha Trotman is an award-winning Equalities Designer and researcher whose practice explores extending the frontiers of knowledge around mental difference, non-typical bodyminds, ways of being and marginalised experiences.

Sonia Boué is a multiform artist, writer on autism and art, and a consultant for neurodiversity in the arts. Sonia has a significant body of postmemory work and her current focus is neuro-inclusive practice-led research.

Isobel Smith completed her MA in Sculpture / Performance at the Royal College of Art in 2017. Her practice crosses performance, sculpture and moving image. ‘Performance is at the root of my practice. I explore my surroundings viscerally, employing a hands-on (or head-in) exploration of material through the performance process.’
