Mainspring Arts is an innovative organisation that works across artistic disciplines to provide opportunities for neurodivergent people. We do this by facilitating workshops to develop participants' skills, providing mentoring by industry leaders, and producing professional-standard publications, performances and showcases.
We aim to promote our participants' work to all audiences, with the ultimate aim of mainstream representation of neurodivergence in the arts. We strongly believe that neurodivergent people should have the opportunity to represent their own voices and experiences.
