NBF - Creativity in Autism - Olivia Macnab & Dr. Clare Lawrence

PLEASE NOT THIS EVENT IS TAKING PLACE AT GANNETS CAFE ON CASTLEGATE, NOT NEWARK LIBRARY. 11th July, 11am. The Importance of Play and Creativity in Creating Empathy across Neurotypes. For many years, we have been told that autistic people cannot understand metaphors or non-literal language, that we cannot be creative or empathise. But in truth, autistic people are incredibly creative! Join Olivia Macnab and co-author Dr. Clare Lawrence on a journey of play, exploration and metaphor as they discuss and overcome these barriers in their new book Creativity in Autism.
