This film was created during a 10 week animation workshop open to anyone in Shetland with autism. The workshops where coordinated by artist Vivian Ross-Smith and filmmaker Stephen Mercer. The project was funded through Shetland Community Choices, a participatory budgeting initiative voted on by the public in March 2017. Read more about Shetland Community Choices – Results here.
Following on from these workshops, the group is continuing under the name ‘Autism Friendly Shetland’ and will meet weekly to offer a space for anyone with autism, plus their friends and family. If you live in Shetland join their Facebook group (Autism Friendly Shetland) to find out more.
