1 in 100 people have autism and we are showing 100 different perspectives this April for Autism Awareness Month.
At the beginning of this year, we asked people in the autism community what they wish others knew about being on the autism spectrum. We received photographs and accompanying stories from 100 individuals and families who wanted to show the ‘real picture’ of autism.
This April, for Autism Awareness Month, we will be displaying the collection in exhibitions in Dundee and Edinburgh and will be adding new images and stories every Thursday to this online gallery until the whole collection is displayed by the end of the month. We will also be displaying a selection of the images at the Thistles Shopping Centre in Stirling on 21 and 22 April.
Awareness of autism is important but we hope that this exhibition will encourage more understanding and acceptance too.
