Flow Unlocked is a creative autistic led collaborative project which highlights the importance of relationships to autistic people. The intense sensitivity with which autistic people relate to the world is rarely recognised, let alone celebrated.
The Flow Unlocked collective has been reflecting on personal and sensory relationships that have sustained them during the pandemic, as well as those they have missed. These reflections will be revealed through poetry, photography, drawing and film in this event. The visual art is created by co-artists Jon Adams and Briony Campbell, in collaboration with the Flow Unlocked participants and Georgia Pavlopoulou, UCL psychologist and autism researcher. Her work on autistic mental health and relationships is at the root of Flow Unlocked.
Traditionally, projects are made about autistic people not with them, but Flow Unlocked breaks the mould by redefining autistic narratives from the perspective of lived experience. We invite you to join us in erasing the damaging stereotypes that exist about autistic people, and celebrating their diverse talents and unique perspectives.
