Photographic Exhibition

'Missing Voices: The Educational Experience of Girls with ASD'

Thursday 13 – Sunday 16 June, Evening Launch on Thursday 13, Social Space, all day.

Gillian O’Hagan, a PhD student in Education, has been researching the educational experience of girls with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, working with 9 girls with Asperger’s/ASD and Autism across four schools in Belfast. She will be presenting a photography exhibition in the Graduate School, which will consist of a culmination of photographs taken by the research participants that they feel tell their story.  The exhibition aims to give an insight into the ASD community, using Photovoice, a type of feminist documentary photography that aims to raise awareness of oppressed groups and societies.

Photovoice has never been used specifically with girls with ASD, and it’s participant-led and collaborative approach will make for a unique and visionary exhibition. Come along to the Social Space to learn about the educational experiences of the ASD community from their own perspectives, as well as supporting Gillian in her research.
