Neurodiverse Museum Professionals Group launching in U.K./Europe and U.S.

The Disability Co-operative Network (D.C.N.) are developing an informal virtual group of Neurodiverse Museum Professionals (dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia, AD(H)D, ASD, Tourette’s) who work (both paid and unpaid) or are emerging professionals in the Heritage and Cultural Sectors.

There will be two groups, one based in U.K. and Europe and its sister group in the United States led by Sam Theriault.

It will be peer supported and led with opportunities to share strategies, develop friendships and influence working practice.

We can also provide opportunities to feedback Access to Work experiences to D.A.N. (Dyslexia Adult Network) and AchieveAbility to improve service in light of the Westminster AchieveAbility Commission Report: Neurodiverse Voices: Opening Doors to Employment and Making A Shift Report by Arts Council England.

We would like the group to work in creating opportunities to improve existing working practices within the Heritage Sector and good for career development in inclusive practice.
