Figment Arts worked with autistic academic Dr Gemma Williams to respond to her research into autistic communication and loneliness. We worked for around 12 months with a group of autistic artists to develop and produce some creative responses to the research. The resulting films are presented here, alongside an 'explainer' video which shows how Gemma conducted her research.
We launched the films in Blackpool at the International Resilience Conference and in Brighton at the Rose Hill. The films are presented here with two of the artists Q&A's.
Thanks to the University of Brighton and the Economic and Social Research Council for funding this project.
