This is the opening event for the exhibition, which runs from 11th - 19th April 2019 in UCC. 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. The images use newspaper coverage, medical textbooks, autistic autobiography and film as raw material for analysis, along with video from around Cork City. More information about this exhibition can be found here: http://stuartneilson.com/creatingautism/ 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. Stuart will be giving a short talk about his work on the night and will also answer questions. He can be contacted at stuartdneilson@gmail.com Tea and coffee will be available - all welcome!
