About: Prismatic Pachyderms Opening Night Celebrations
Pachyderm (noun): a very large mammal with thick skin, especially an elephant, rhinoceros, or hippopotamus
Prismatic Pachyderms is an interactive analogy that explains the impact of those living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) through the world of elephants.
Sarah has observed the many traits shared by people on the spectrum and elephants. Both are fragile, sensitive wonders of this world who experience high levels of anxiety and require the love, guidance and support of their family herd to help them navigate their way through life.
Sarah has drawn on her childhood experiences growing up in Africa and her family’s experiences with ASD to create this inspirational while deeply personal exhibition.
Sarah will also launch her illustrated children's book 'The Rainbow Elephant'
Light refreshments provided, all welcome.
