University of Nottingham Express Yourself

Express Yourself: Autistic adolescents sharing ideas about anxiety and navigating an ever changing world

As part of the Festival of Social Sciences, the School of Education is looking for autistic adolescents to help understand and support diversity. This is a chance for them to come together to be heard and to hear each other, to demonstrate that their experience is valid and valuable and that they are able to contribute to the development of research and thinking about education. They will be able to express themselves in any way they feel comfortable; taking part in a discussion or just listening to others; using their skills and interests to demonstrate what education means to them; and sharing strategies for coping in mainstream school or thriving out of full time school.

On the second afternoon there will be the opportunity to look at their ideas; to share thoughts, feelings, and ideas in a variety of ways, to identify key strategies and coping mechanisms that can assist them in day to day life, but using the arts as a particular medium to support the development of those strategies. This work will be guided by artists across different art-forms with different skills. This will be a fun and safe environment to try new ideas and to help artists and professionals think about different ways of working with young people that can have a positive impact.

Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd November 1-4pm

Participants will then have the opportunity to invite friends and family to the university on Friday 8 November to share their work.

Full information can be found on the event webpage.
