About the event
In this webinar we’ll hear from neurodivergent artists and practitioners who work with digital audiences in mind. They’ll discuss how they use digital to make work, what opportunities have opened up, and some of the challenges they’ve encountered.
We’ll also discuss the extent to which digital arts and culture satisfy neurodivergent audiences. We will ask what needs to change, and talk about the ways in which the neurotypical world can adapt to become more inclusive to ND thinkers.
Elizabeth Arifien and Charlotte Edmonds – Move Beyond Words
Move Beyond Words was co-founded in 2020 by choreographers and artists Charlotte Edmonds and Elizabeth Arifien. Their podcast series, and their film, Unboxed, are examples of the ways in which they support and amplify the voices of artists with dyslexia.
Composer, musicologist and creative technologist Andrew Hugill set up the aural diversity network to recognise that everybody hears differently. As part of its Culture in Quarantine programme the BBC commissioned Andrew’s collection Spectrum Sounds, seven pieces of music in the colours of the spectrum.
With the ethos that dance is for absolutely everyone, Corey Baker creates accessible dance experiences and takes work to global communities to be enjoyed by large and diverse audiences. His work includes last year’s Swan Lake Bath Ballet with 27 dancers around the world filmed on smart phones.
Becki Morris is an experienced museum professional specialising in intersectional inclusive practice in the heritage sector. She is also the Director at the Disability Collaborative Network, and will discuss how digital can help heritage and cultural organisations to open up their collections.
