Neuk Collective presents an exhibition of work by four neurodivergent artists - Robyn Benson, Dylan Esposito, Tzipporah Johnston and Dawnne McGeachy.
Neuk Collective was formed in 2020 to advocate for neurodivergent (e.g. autistic, dyspraxic, dyslexic) artists in the Scottish art scene. Their inaugural exhibition showcases the quality and diversity of work by neurodivergent artists, and launches their manifesto for neurodiversity in the arts, and a guide for cultural organisations who want to support neurodivergent artists.
Tues 23rd November 5.30-7pm – Places strictly limited, please book a place here: www.eventbrite.com/e/neuk-collective-exhibition-quiet-eveningtuesday-23rd-november-tickets-184691857317
We want our exhibition to be as welcoming as possible so we will have some access features for visitors, including:
Coloured reading overlays, windows and line trackers
Audio description (via QR codes)
A chill-out nook onsite if you get overwhelmed
Our manifesto will also be available in Illustrated, Dyslexia-friendly, Easy Read, Braille, Audio and BSL.
Wheelchair access: The clearance of the doors is 120cm, and there is a disabled toilet in the onsite cafe.
Sensory information: The exhibition is located in a mixed-use space that includes a cafe. There will be noises from the coffee machines and chatter of customers, and there may be the smell of coffee and cake. If these things are difficult for you, you might prefer our Quiet Evening (Tuesday 23rd November, 5.30-7pm), when the cafe will be closed. You can book a place here
If you have any questions or would like to discuss your access needs, please get in touch at email@example.com
