Neuk Collective Exhibition & Manifesto Launch

Neuk Collective exhibition, showcasing the work of four neurodivergent artists – Robyn Benson, Dylan Esposito, Tzipporah Johnston and Dawnne McGeachy. The exhibition is also the launch of our manifesto for neurodiversity in the arts, and guide to working with neurodivergent artists.

Rather than a launch evening or private view, we will be having a relaxed daytime opening on Saturday 20th November, when all four collective artists will be available to chat. We would be delighted to see you then, or on any of the other days.

Saturday 20th – Friday 26th November, at Custom Lane Gallery, 1 Customs Wharf, Leith, Edinburgh, EH6 6AL

Mon-Sat: 10-4pm

Sun: 11-4pm 

Free and unticketed – just pop in!

Quiet evening: Tuesday 23rd November, 5.30-7pm, booking essential – https://neukcollective.co.uk/exhibition/

Access information: 

We want to make our exhibition as welcoming of ND folk as possible so we are also trying out a number of access features –

  • Ear defenders
  • Coloured reading overlays, windows and line trackers
  • Audio description (via QR codes)
  • Communication badges
  • A chill-out nook onsite if you get overwhelmed

Our manifesto will also be available in Illustrated, Dyslexia-friendly, Easy Read, Braille, Audio and BSL

Wheelchair access: The clearance of the doors is 120cm, and there is a disabled toilet in the onsite cafe.

Sensory information: The exhibition is in a mixed-use space that includes a cafe. There will be noises from the coffee machines and chatter of customers, and there may be the smell of coffee and cake. If these things are challenging for you, you might prefer our Quiet Evening (Tuesday 23rd November, 5.30-7pm), when the cafe will be closed – please see our website to book (www.neukcollective.co.uk/exhibition)

This exhibition is kindly sponsored by Creative Scotland, Custom Lane and Eastern Exhibition & Display.
