When researching neurodiversity and art, the subject of access to funding came up for me. The application for funding documents a process that is often very challenging for the neurodiverse creative. Laura Dobbs, in her blog https://rachel.we-are-low-profile.com/blog/ July 2016) talks about how she has often helped neurodiverse artists navigate the funding portal Grantium for the Arts Council England.
Dobbs (2016) has observed that neurodiverse individuals look for “a desire, need and ability to see things clearly on macro and micro scales (sometimes simultaneously, as in the case of diagrams / maps / charts)”. Therefore, how can a process that requires concise compartmentalised information for funding be easily accessed?
Actually, how does a neurodiverse creative therefore access ANYTHING easily in the art world?
