Encountering a New Normal:
Call Out for Neurodiverse artists, who experience any form of misogyny, including trans* misogyny, to be part of an online group network/ residency. The intention for this group is to create a space for neuro-diverse people who experience misogyny and/or trans misogyny including, including but not limited to trans women, cis women, trans feminine people, AFAB people, non-binary or gender queer folk, and anyone for whom woman or female is, or has been, a significant part of their identity and / or lived experience.
The crisis and lockdown has put immense strain on individual artists’ mental health and creative processes, leaving some feeling adrift. For others, their creative practice has blossomed during this time and they’ve found new avenues with their artwork.
If you’ve found yourself falling into either category or swimming around somewhere in between, this is a space for womxn artists to come together online, to stimulate one another’s creative processes, to share work with on a regular basis and support one another.
This has emerged through receiving the Emergency Response Fund for Individuals from Arts Council England, which has given me space to research and find ways of creating resources for neuro-diverse artists.
Being a bi-polar, neuro-diverse artist, I would love to work with others to expand this research and find ways of sharing and prompting ‘new’ processes, especially now as the world is pushing us to get back to ‘normal’.
This group will be self organised with regular check-ins and sharings and be informed by the needs and desires of those taking part.
