Technically Brilliant aims to provide creative, technical and artistic opportunities for austitic young people (12 upwards). Facilitating them to develop and explore their talents, interests and skills, in a small group environment, so allowing them to improve their communication and confidence and helping them to find ways to negotiate the path to adulthood.
Each individual should feel comfortable, safe and enabled to enjoy new activities and develop skills, as a part of their journey to more independent lives.
At TechnicallyBrilliant we try to provide a fun learning environment with small group sizes. The young person directs their learning and we make projects around what they’d like to achieve. Some young people work towards Arts Awards, some make products or prototypes, others just enjoy making.
Workshops cost £20 for a 2 hour session, group sizes are around eight people and all general art materials are provided.
Young people who attend will develop skills like comic and game design, electronics and programming. So…. that’s what we do, everything from art to androids. We provide machines and technology and we all try and make something. Animations with motion capture systems, models with parts cut on a CNC routers, games on our laptops, even films with our cameras… really anything. We hope to uncover the talents that could lead to careers or businesses that will help these young people be a part of the creative community and help them make some friends and prove they are TechnicallyBrilliant!
