Jess Starns, founder of ‘Dyspraxic Me’, a charity for young adults with dyspraxia, will be delivering a series of workshops with us in the Autumn of 2018. Jess is currently completing her Inclusive Arts Practice MA at the University of Brighton.

From 15th October- 26th November 2018 Jess shall be delivering her research project. As her Masters is arts based she shall be using art as a way together data and discussions responding to her research question.

Jess’ research question is:

How should we interpret and curate the history of labelling people with learning difficulties (neurodiversity)?

Jess is looking for a maximum of 10 participants to work with her as a group and being involved in the arts-based research. The research is for participants who define themselves as having a learning difficulty (neurodiversity) for example dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, ADHD, ASD and autism.

The research will take place over 7 sessions. From 15th October till 25th November for 7 weeks. The research will take place at the Free Space Project, Kentish Town Health Centre, 2 Bartholomew Road, London NW5 2BX. Apart from the 2nd session on Tuesday 23rd October will take place at the Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, Kings Cross, London NW1 2BE. Each session will last for 2hours 30mins from 11am till 1.30pm.

What is the purpose of the study/project?

The purpose and aims of the study are:

  • The research will start conversations through learning about neurodiversity history by exploring archives, newspaper articles and museum objects, reflecting on their own personal experiences, in comparison to, and informed by, archive items at the Wellcome Collection. Learning what is important to the neurodiverse community when telling the history of labelling people with learning difficulties including charitable, medical, educational and personal narratives.
  • Discuss how to tell an unbiased narrative through historical accounts and personal experiences.
  • The terminology to use when talking about neurodiversity, the history of classifying people with learning difficulties, challenge prejudice views, to think about why there is a focus on ‘curing’, exploring current attitudes and how we portray neurodiversity in the media.
  • Through the research I would hope to find out for museums and collections what’s important to the neurodiverse community when telling the history of labelling people with learning difficulties? Through the charitable, medical, educational and personal narratives.

Please contact Jess if you have any questions or would like to find out more about the research: Jas35@brighton.ac.uk.

Event Details

Join photographer Celine Marchbank for a short photography workshop to explore the beautiful details of daily life that surround us, and learn how to tell stories in a series of images.

As a photographer, Celine has always been obsessed with finding the beauty in the everyday. She feels it’s the photographer’s role to see something others might miss and say ‘hey, look over here’. Inspecting the smaller, abstract and often overlooked details of our everyday life, Celine may ponder the teacup on a table, an item left on a street, the strange mark along a wall.

Workshop participants will go out to shoot with specific tasks in mind to make them pay more attention to the everyday, and to encourage them to try to create a visual mood and story within their images. Participants will be challenged on the day to produce a small body of work, a photo story, for group review at the end of the session.
