New project for Autistics around London:
The project will involve working in a group to create a piece of drama or other form of art over a period of 2 months then it will end with a performance and/or exhibition at the beginning of November 2012 (date and location to be confirmed) and the aim of it is to challenge people’s misconceptions about autism.
Most importantly, it will be fun, exciting and needs to have a humorous side to it too!
This is a great opportunity to share your talents, insights, creative ideas and work with a group of autistic people.
