Life on the Spectrum – Call for Art (Due Date)

February 15, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Life On The Spectrum Call for Art
Join ACW’s partnership with Grand Hand Gallery

Did you know that an estimated 1 in 100 children worldwide is born with autism? In order to reduce the stigma of neurodivergent individuals, we must work together to educate ourselves and one another on the condition.

Artists who participate in this gallery exhibition are tasked with creating a piece of any medium they choose as long as it addresses the given prompt: How has autism changed your world? Both neurodivergent and neurotypical artists are encouraged to apply and draw on their personal experiences with autism. Let’s all come together to talk about what it really means to be on the spectrum.
