Imagining Autism

A collaboration between the School of Arts, the Tizard Centre, the School of Psychology and the Gulbenkian Theatre

 

Imagining Autism was initiated as a collaboration between the disciplines of drama and psychology that sought to address the differences in communication, social interaction and imagination in autistic children. Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (2011-2014) and based at the University of Kent, Imagining Autism worked with the School of Arts, the Tizard Centre, the School of Psychology and the Gulbenkian Theatre. The project has since developed into researching and celebrating autistic creativity and imagination as a source of well being and learning, and establishing a substantial public engagement programme.
