Hay Festival and Ruskin Mill Trust have joined forces to launch Neurodiversity: A Living Conference, a new weekend festival exploring and celebrating neurodiversity, taking place Friday 27-Saturday 28 July 2018 at Ruskin Mill College, Nailsworth.

Aimed at parents and professionals, the two-day festival will feature talks, panels, performances and workshops that offer new perspectives on autism, creativity and engagement. Delegates will also work alongside students to experience the therapeutic and productive aspects of craftwork.

Aonghus Gordon, founder and chief executive of Ruskin Mill Trust, said: “Our partnership with Hay Festival is not only an unparalleled opportunity to further research neurological differences but the recognition that there is a need to broaden the conversation. Hay Festival is in perfect harmony with the vision and values held by Ruskin Mill Trust.”

Andy Fryers, sustainability director at Hay Festival, said: “We are excited to be working with Ruskin Mill Trust to put on a unique two day event in Neurodiversity – A Living Conference. Having spent time working with the Trust to fine tune our own offer for neurodiversity at our events in Wales, we recognise a need to debate and discovery around best practice and new guidance, which we hope the conference will offer.”
