NEUK Collective report on removing barriers for neurodivergent artists
Equalities - 17 May 2022
On Tuesday 3rd of May, we held a SCAN Members Meet with Neuk Collective on working with neurodivergent artists. Neuk Collective is a group of neurodivergent artists founded in 2020, with the aim of supporting neurodivergent creatives in Scotland through advocacy, education, and community-building. In 2021 they published the Neuk Manifesto, a ten-point plan for a more inclusive art scene, along with a practical guide to supporting neurodivergent artists in the workplace.
Here, we share Removing Barriers, Neuk Collective’s report on research into the experiences of neurodivergent artists in Scotland. They aimed to find out neurodivergent artists’ experiences in the arts, particularly:
• the barriers they experienced in the arts;
• their priorities for change;
• what kind of interventions they thought would be most helpful.
