Autism Hounslow is a Community Group that works to improve life for autistic people - their families, friends and carers in Hounslow. They are run for and by autistic people and their families and friends.
On the 3rd of August 2017, we launched the Neurodiversity Shindig in partnership with Autism Hounslow to promote acceptance, awareness and inclusion through a series of performances and talks. The event launch was hosted at the Watermans Arts Centre, Brentford, where the group meet once a month for an evening drop in session.
The Neurodiversity Shindig was a chance for people on the autistic spectrum to come together for some food, conversations and light entertainment. Poetical Word was instrumental in providing a compere to emcee the event, as well as infrastructural event support for Autism Hounslow.
The gathering had over 50 people in attendance. That, coupled with the many new friendships formed made the Neurodiversity Shindig a huge success. We’re thrilled to be working alongside such a noteworthy cause and look forward to future projects together.
