Neurodiversity and Visibility

The infinite variations of the human brain and differences in sociability, learning, attention and mood are considered and represented here, in work made by and/or for people with neurological differences such as autism and ADHD.

The concept of Neurodiversity has been world-changing, by giving us a new perspective on humanity, but it needs to mature to the point where we see that human nature is complex, and nature is beautiful but not benign.

Judy Singer, Sociologist and coiner of the term ‘neurodiversity’

The ADHD stereotype of young, white hyperactive boys is doubly damaging for Black women in particular who find it impossible to see themselves in the narrative. Failing to see themselves represented, they then hesitate to seek out adequate support.
