A new film installation by young artists with autism and a broad spectrum of learning differences, challenging how people like themselves are represented in mainstream media.
Each three-screen video portrait features the artist speaking directly to the camera about their everyday life, flanked by shots of the places and things that inform their identity. Based in Hackney and aged 16 - 25, all of the filmmakers are members of Mouth That Roars, a youth media organisation.
A Different Way of Seeing is part of the UK-wide EXPLORERS Project, celebrating the extraordinary contribution neurodiverse people make to art and culture. #ExplorersProjectRead More
A Different Way of Seeing is in partnership with Mouth That Roars (MTR), a youth media company which was set up with the sole purpose of training young people in film production who wouldn’t ordinarily have access to media resources.
MTR enables young people who are quite often misrepresented a space to be heard, and a medium through which they can voice their thoughts and feelings.
The EXPLORERS Project is informed and led by neurodiverse communities, in collaboration with cultural organisations across the UK and in Australia. explorersproject.org
The project is led by Project Art Works, the UK’s leading artist led organisation working with children, young people and adults who have complex support needs. EXPLORERS is supported by the Arts Council Ambition for Excellence Programme and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

Autograph is a place to see things differently. Since 1988, we have championed photography that explores issues of race, identity, representation, human rights and social justice, sharing how photographs reflect lived experiences and shape our understanding of ourselves and others.Donate Join our mailing list
