Heart n Soul at The Hub

Our residents in The Hub from 2018–20 are award-winning creative arts company and charity Heart n Soul.

Jointly led by autistic people, people with learning disabilities and non-disabled people, Heart n Soul at The Hub are exploring ideas like human value, normality and the value of difference. They want to challenge perceptions and changing attitudes in society.

What Heart n Soul wants to do in The Hub

The people leading Heart n Soul’s approach are investigators rather than subjects of research. Throughout the two-year residency Heart n Soul will ask questions of society around three main areas:

  • productivity
  • what is normal?
  • the value of difference.

Heart n Soul are asking those questions in creative ways, including through events here at Wellcome Collection and accessible online projects.

They will also investigate what relationships between neurodiverse and neurotypical people can teach us about wellbeing.

You can take part in Heart n Soul’s first research survey, which asks what productivity means to you.
