Current, flows: autism, creativity and learning

Current, flows took place on Wednesday 8th September at the University of Kent. It was an early evening event with a difference, exploring autistic experiences through a stimulating and exciting programme. We presented an exhibition of diverse creativity and latest thinking about autism.

The evening began with the screening of the short animation film “I Feel Different” (12A, Playing A/Part & BBC), kicking off a lively discussion between experts and audience about “Futures for Autistic Girls: diagnosis, education and beyond.” After sampling some food/refreshments, we were treated to a reading from our local and internationally acclaimed author Katherine May whose memoir of late-diagnosis, “The Electricity of Every Living Thing” was set amidst “zones of flow (iii),” a stunning light installation from Rocio von Jungenfeld.

Our exhibition, WOW (Welcome to our World) was also open before the event.

Current, flows was presented in association with ICCI.
