Event details

This event forms part of Coventry University's Festival of Social Science.

The UK Government 5-year suicide prevention strategy for England highlights autistic people as a priority for suicide prevention and recommends tackling feelings of not belonging as an important intervention.

This exhibition organised within the ESRC Festival of Social Science showcases art from the belonging project funded by Coventry City of Culture. The images represent different meanings of belonging and connectedness.

Who's leading the event? 

The exhibition, walking tour and informal discussion will be led by Mirabel Pelton, PhD student at Coventry University's Research Centre for Intelligent Healthcare. It will explore suicide theory with autistic people.
