February’s global theme is ‘Divergent’, chosen by our friends over at CreativeMornings Valencia.
We decided to take this opportunity to host our next Lates event around neurodivergence and celebrating neurodiverse creatives.
Neurodiversity refers to variation in the human brain (whether it’s sociability, learning, attention, mood or other mental functions), and this includes dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, autism, and Asperger’s syndrome.
In this event, you’ll hear incredible creatives from across the neurodivergent spectrum share their stories and learnings and experiences.
Neurodiversity is often a taboo subject, even to those who are diagnosed and living their everyday lives. Join us as we explore the topic of neurodivergence and elevate a community that is often sidelined and misunderstood.
Bring a pen & notepad along with you.
We’ll share the Zoom link on Thursday morning.
