Independent Arts Projects aim to create space and sensory art projects with and for three distinct groups: people with complex Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC); people with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD); and people with Dementia. We are particularly interested in working with those living with these conditions who often have complex needs and challenging behaviour(s) and who would benefit from low-capacity, exclusive sensory arts experiences to cater to their needs and interests, as well as others who may find it most difficult to access mainstream arts activity.


The creative practitioners taking part in this project are:

  • Joanna Young
  • Kirstin Abraham
  • Kirsty Biff Nicolson
  • Max Alexander
  • Niroshini Thambar
  • Sonia Allori
