Mitchell Library, Glasgow

Autistic adults from across Scotland have highlighted their own experiences of living with the condition by producing artwork and poetry, which is being shown in an unique exhibition running at the Mitchell Library, Glasgow from 10-16 February.


The pieces in the exhibition, entitled ‘My life with autism or Asperger syndrome’ were entries in The National Autistic Society’s recent creativity competition, and provide fascinating individual perspectives of autism through poetry and prose, 2D art and photography.


The competition is part of our ongoing I Exist campaign, launched in 2008, which highlights the lack of support available for adults living with autism. Based on the largest ever survey in Scotland on the experiences of adults with autism and their families, the campaign revealed for the first time the daily reality for many thousands of adults who feel isolated, ignored and unable to access the required support.


Carol Evans, National Director of NAS Scotland and Northern Ireland, said: “There are 50,000 people in Scotland with autism – that’s 1 in 100 – and many adults with autism from across Scotland tell us how important art and creativity are to their well-being.

“We believe this exhibition is an exciting and rewarding way of showing how a person with autism expresses themselves and it allows us to share their unique experiences and creativity. We hope that the works in this exhibition will bring home to the general public just some of the realities faced by adults living with autism across Scotland today.”


The exhibition can be seen at the Mitchell Library, Glasgow, from Tuesday 10th February until Friday 16th February 2009, from 9am to 8pm.
