Re•Storying Autism ‘In’ Difference/ Autistic, Surviving and Thriving Under COVID-19

Hosted by Tangled Art + Disability

Location

Tangled Art Gallery, 401 Richmond Street West, S-124, Toronto, ON, M5V 3A8, Canada

Re•Storying Autism ‘In’ Difference/ Autistic, Surviving and Thriving Under COVID-19 is a zine and video exhibit presented by the Re•Storying Autism Collective/ Project. Autistic people face stigma, misunderstanding, and exclusion from life and art. The Re•Storying Autism Collective/ Project resists this through story and art making. Videos in the exhibit are made by Autistic makers, family, and kin from Canada (Turtle Island), Aotearoa (New Zealand) and the UK. The videos show what it is like to desire the difference of Autism and live well ‘in’ difference. The zines are made by Autistic makers from across Canada (Turtle Island). In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, we saw that the world could change. We came together as a collective to resist isolation and imagine Autistic futures where Autistic ways of being re-make the world in radically affirming ways.
