Vivid Projects’ Black Hole Club is a lively, daring space for creative people – artists, designers, curators and writers and more – in the West Midlands to share and test ideas.

Join David Checkley, Sarah Walden (Birmingham City University) and Coral Manton (Plymouth University, i-DAT), members of Black Hole Club’s 2017 cohort, for this interactive workshop examining the form and function of cognitive interruption as experienced by neurodivergent individuals (e.g. people with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Synaesthesia, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia and ADHD).

Bringing together sculpture, immersive video and virtual reality with somatic exercises and brainwave monitoring, the workshop will encourage participants to consider the generative and creative aspects of cognitive interruption and neurological difference.

Presented by members of Vivid Projects Black Hole Club 2017.
