Heart n Soul at The Hub
Heart n Soul at The Hub is a research project led by people with learning disabilities and autistic people. Our work is about exploring the value of difference and questioning what is ‘normal’.
We are reversing the microscope that is usually on people with learning disabilities and autistic people, so that they are in control of the questions we ask in our research.
The project was brought together by award-winning creative arts charity Heart n Soul. It is based in The Hub at Wellcome Collection, a space where lots of different people come together to do research. We work in a collaborative way with disabled, learning disabled, autistic and non-disabled artists and researchers, cultural writers, social scientists, computer scientists and designers.
Through our research we want to challenge society’s attitudes towards people with learning disabilities and autistic people and find out how relationships between people who appear different from each other can affect mutual wellbeing.
