The Autography project has been designed and will be delivered by Anna Farley, who has autism. This project believes that everyone on the autism spectrum has the right to feel happy. We will achieve this by hosting a weekly group workshop and a weekly open-access session at Photofusion where participants will work with professional teachers, ASC (Autism Spectrum Condition) experts, mentors and artists on the following:
- Establishing a supportive peer group through weekly meetings with fellow ASC adults in an accessible and non-judgmental space.
- Learning new skills and techniques for managing elements of our conditions including self-care and well-being skills.
- Working together to make photographic work that will help us and the public understand our unique experiences of ASC.
- Working together to programme an ASC awareness festival at Photofusion for members of the public to come and gain a greater awareness of ASC conditions.
This project would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors, partners and supporters.
