“Let Us Show You” is a group art project.
The group was young people labelled with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The group wanted to express their experiences being a labelled person through art.
They created drawings using pens, markers and paints.
Everyone made individual drawings first and then shared them with everyone.
The art was about identity.
The art was about having meaningful connections with other people.
The art was about wanting to belong and be accepted for being different.
The group decided to exhibit their work.
They found a venue in the community.
The audience was asked to write out their thoughts and comments about the art.
The group met again to discuss the comments and what it was like to exhibit their art.
