This network was created to address the lack of a visible neurodiverse community within the Scottish performance sector, despite the large number of neurodivergent practicing artists. This is a space by and for neurodivergent artists to make connections and share projects, practice, politics, advice and support.
The Scottish Neurodiverse Performance Network is a network of Scottish artists who identify as neurodiverse and work in performance. SNPN is a space for those artists to begin forming relationships, a community and to share practice, ideas, projects, advice and support. We are based at the CCA , where we meet monthly.
Who is this group for?
This group is for anyone who identifies as neurodiverse and is an artist working in performance in Scotland. This includes those with either a medical diagnosis or a self-identification of a neurodiverse condition, and is for all sorts of artists working in performance; theatre, dance, live art, music, production, film, etc. This group is for everyone regardless of career level, students are welcome. This space is by and for neurodiverse artists working in performance in Scotland, if this isn’t you but have your own reasons to join the community then please prioritise neurodiverse voices above your own. This is not a space intended for neurotypical artists making work for neurodiverse audiences. This group is currently centered on Scottish performance, neurodiverse artist of other mediums and locations are welcome but the focus is on the field of performance in Scotland.
