Photoworks is pleased to announce phase II of our ongoing programme In Focus which includes new commissions, photography clubs, and public events designed with and for neurodiverse artists and communities.

In Focus is part of a wider programmed called Explorers; comprising awareness-raising activity, commissions, exhibitions, seminars, and events developed by Project Art Works in partnership with Photoworks and other cultural partners, with and for neurodiverse communities, placing them at the heart of social, civic, and cultural activity. You can find the list of collaborators here.

In Focus commissions support the creation of new work specifically by a neurodiverse adult, including those who may be non-verbal or require complex support.


Photoworks is thrilled to be part of phase II of Explorers, continuing our commitment to work with neurodiverse artists and communities. We will once again be focusing on commissioning new work to present in an exhibition as well as in a new series of digital commissions.’

  • Shoair Mavlian, Director at Photoworks
