An open discussion exploring ‘neurodiversity’, hosted by academic and performance artist Daniel Oliver, and based on the ‘Long Table’ format.

What to expect

This event provides an opportunity to discuss, question, rant about, draw, doodle, and chinwag on the topic of neurodiversity. It has been organised by Daniel Oliver, a performance artist and researcher based at Queen Mary University of London. Daniel’s current projects explore neurodiveristy, contemporary performance, and his own experiences as a dyspraxic. Daniel will offer a brief overview and some provocation to kickstart the conversation – an open discussion involving whoever turns up and chooses to take a seat at the table.

What’s a Long Table?

The Long Table format, invented by Lois Weaver, consists of people sitting around a long table covered by a paper table cloth whilst others watch and listen from close by. All present are invited to the table to speak in a rolling discussion. For more information click here.
