Alphabet Soup

Through the work of visual artists Danielle Sheehy and Isabella Dogliani, this event explores the ways dyslexia impacts the lives of roughly 10% of the population. Alphabet Soup is a celebratory arts exhibition that highlights the achievements of neurodiverse and dyslexic people. Bringing together artists and experts in the field, Alphabet Soup explores dyslexia through art, audio and an educational panel.
