About this event

Sonia Boué is concerned with objects, identity and location. Rooted in a fascination with family archives, material memory, and the themes of forced migration and inherited trauma, her work has been exhibited internationally and is held in digital form at Tate Britain, the BBC, and Bodleian Library in Oxford. She has performed in the UK, Ireland, and Spain.

Sonia also creates and leads Arts Council England-funded projects which pioneer inclusive models of practice, and is also a writer on autism and art, and a leading consultant for neurodiversity in the arts. As an experienced freelance neurodivergent (ND) artist, writer, and consultant for arts organisations, she helps arts organisations embed the authentic learning needed to work confidently with ND creatives, and create effective bespoke engagement strategies for ND individuals and communities.

In partnership with Autistic Nottingham:
with Lottery funding from Arts Council England
