What is Autistic Eye?
‘Autistic Eye’ was founded in 2013 and provides an opportunity for people on the Autistic Spectrum to sell their artwork and share it in a positive and insightful way. Our tagline is 'seeing things differently' and that's what we're all about.
Seeing things differently – Autism has been called ‘the hidden disability’ because it does not have obvious physical characteristics or features. This can make situations difficult for people with Autism and their families, because other people sometimes think that children with autism are ‘naughty’ and adults with autism are ‘odd’. Through ‘Autistic Eye’, we appreciate people with Autism and find positive features about the disability and those affected by it.
Seeing things differently – Autism is an officially and legally recognised ‘disability’. This is a good thing because it prohibits discrimination and makes support mandatory. Autistic Eye focuses on ability rather than disability, by publicising and selling artwork produced by those on the Autistic Spectrum.
Seeing things differently – like everyone, people with autism have difficulties and challenges, but they also have strengths. Through Autistic Eye, people with autism can share their creativity.
Seeing things differently - Many people with autism are unemployed and isolated. Autistic Eye provides
meaningful and profitable occupation, a network of people with similar interests and a way to enrich the lives of others.
Join us in ‘seeing things differently’ and help change the lives of people with autism.
