Free 64-page booklet:
Written by Rosemarie Cawkwell, a research assistant at Faraway, an organisation based in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, that provides support to autistic adults in the area. Faraway is a peer-led, peer-run organisation providing an online social network, an allotment group and woodworking groups, as part of a Green Social Prescribing project. They also provide pre and post diagnostic support courses for people waiting diagnosis and those who have just received their diagnosis, in partnership with Matthew’s Hub, Hull.
The Neurodivergent History project is all about the “weirdos” that history generally likes to ignore; the “mad”, the “idiots” and the “different”. In this show and the accompanying booklet, Rosemarie Cawkwell, supported by The Faraway CIC and funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, has brought these people out of the shadows, to show that neurodiversity is a natural part of humanity and neurodivergent people have always been here.
The show includes work by Rosemarie Cawkwell and Emma Skinner - most pieces are for sale.
