Autism Festival 2021-2022:
For it's second edition of the Autism Festival, TACC presented the Creation Initiative, a virtual interactive exhibit showcasing the work of 19 autistic artists wanting to share their art and creativity and contribute to a better understanding of the autistic community in Quebec in all its diversity.
In addition to the virtual exhibit, the Maison de la Culture in Pointe-aux-Trembles showcased the works of 6 autistic adults in a first-time collaboration with TACC.
Through their paintings, photographs, sculptures and illustrated texts, the artists aimed not only to raise awareness about neurodevelopmental conditions, but also about the social causes they care about.
