About Explorers Project

 EXPLORERS is a three-year programme of creative investigations through collaborations with neurodiverse communities and cultural organisations across the UK and in Australia.

EXPLORERS is taking place against a backdrop of increased hardship and marginalisation of vulnerable people. The project celebrates and raises awareness of the dynamic, extraordinary contribution neurodiverse communities make to art and culture.

EXPLORERS creates opportunities for people to meet as equals through shared and profound creative experiences. These establish enduring and meaningful partnerships for individuals, services and organisations.

Partners include: Autograph ABP, De La Warr Pavilion, Fabrica, MK Gallery, Photoworks, Tate Liverpool, East Sussex County Council, Hastings Borough Council, South East Museum Development Programme, The Forestry Commission, UNSW, National Institute for Experimental Arts
