Creative Industries Festival: Neurodivergence in the Creative Industries: talk and workshop
In collaboration with the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Research, Innovation and Knowledge Exchange Network, this workshop is run by the producers of Square Hole, a podcast investigating neurodiversity, employment and the creative industries. Lorna Allan is a photographer, art director and founder of Hidden Women of Design. Jhinuk Sarkar is an illustrator and educator with a practice interested in sensory experiences. Throughout the podcast they explore and celebrate what it means to be individuals, to be neurodiverse and the importance of community and support when trying to fit into spaces that aren’t quite the right shape. They will discuss the influence of neurodiversity on creative practice and how the podcast originated.
