The Taking Interest free exhibition welcomes anyone and everyone to discover the creative insight of young minds on the Autistic Spectrum. The exhibition is the concept of Anne Douglass, an International Architectural and landscape photographer.

It is through collaboration with the National Autistic society’s Social Inclusion Project, and Arts Council funding that Anne was able to work with young people to give them the opportunity to photograph their own interests and share their unique outlook with a public audience.

The free exhibition is on Friday 25th October, 6-9pm and Saturday 26th October 12-6pm at The Ouse St. Arts Club,

Ouse Street, Newcastle, NE1 2PF

Anne Douglass explains – “Being on the Autistic Spectrum myself, this project is very close to my heart and working with the children has been very inspiring and we’ve also had some fun along the way. The children are very excited about the exhibition and looking forward to seeing their work.”

Charlie Gallagher, Senior Practitioner, the National Autistic Society says – “Our members thoroughly enjoyed working with Anne and having the opportunity to express themselves through photography. The explanations provided by our members as to the meaning, thought and logic behind their images was truly fascinating.”
