Creating Autism is our February exhibition displaying in our mezzanine gallery!
Creating Autism is an exhibition of images and words by Stuart Neilson exploring the processes that shape autistic identity and the portrayal of autism in our shared language, media and public spaces. The exhibition runs from the 3rd -27th February.
