Sign up for CVAN SE’s Neurodivergent Peer Group
3rd May 2023
CVAN SE are creating a new Neurodivergent Peer Group for artists and art workers in the South East. If you’d like to come along to an initial conversation about lived experience as a neurodivergent person working in the Visual Arts, please complete the sign up form here.
Our next online meeting will be on Wednesday 12th July, 4-5pm. If you can’t make it, we’ll send you details of future opportunities to be involved.
We welcome anyone who self-identifies as neurodivergent. Many people in our community use neurodiversity as an umbrella term to describe alternative thinking styles such as autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dyscalculia, dyslexia, dyspraxia, tourette syndrome and complex tic disorders.
Instead of labelling people with deficits or disorders, when we use the term neurodiversity, we take a balanced view of an individual’s unique strengths and challenges.
Many ‘challenges’ neurodivergent people face are more to do with the environment and systems they are placed in, often designed by a majority population.
