“Autistic are able to see what human beings don’t see.” It is a phrase by Temple Grandin, who has dedicated a lifetime to reflect, understand and raise awareness on the issues and realities of autism. And today, April 2, when World Autism Awareness Day 2021 is celebrated, it is nice to remember these words, which I associate with a beautiful experience.
In these video I present scenes from a creative experience which involved autistic and disabled kids (in Aprilia, Latina, Italy). Led by teacher Patrizia Sapri, they worked to reproduce the pictures I took around an old and rusty bus at Bartons Plc (Beeston – Nottingham, UK) for “The Ghost Bus / A visual adventure in the Land of Robin Hood”, project made with Bartons Plc, Barton Garage,Simon Barton, ACT Art Culture Tourism by Marysia Zipser. These images, in their tenderness, confirm the words of Temple Grandin and invite us, every day, to discover the richness of each different normality.
