Visit the Wall of Change to see a mural of objects and spaces reimagined by participants and artists from Heart n Soul at The Hub, a research project led by autistic people and people with learning disabilities.

Heart n Soul are thinking inclusively about alternative futures as part of their project’s research into the value of difference. Their designs, created in collaboration with The Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design, include can openers that work at a push of a button and hospitals that you would actually enjoy visiting.

Feel inspired to choose something in your own life to change or redesign – sit down, grab a pencil and paper and sketch or describe your idea. Then you can add it to the wall or tweet it to #wallofchange for it to become part of Heart n Soul’s research.

The artwork for the Wall of Change was created by Ben Connors in collaboration with Heart n Soul participants and artists.
