'Creating Autism' is an exhibition of images and words by Stuart Neilson exploring the processes that shape autistic identity and the portrayal of autism in our shared language, media, and public spaces. Stuart will be giving a short talk about his work on the night and will also answer questions.

The images use newspaper coverage, medical textbooks, autistic autobiography and film as raw material for analysis, along with video from around Cork City. Stuart lectures and writes about the autistic spectrum as a health statistician, and from his personal perspective of an Asperger Syndrome diagnosis in 2009, at the age of 45.
