Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We support artists, musicians and creative writers on the autism spectrum by providing a forum for displaying, selling and promoting the art of autistic individuals, including visual and fine artists; poets, video/film content providers, singers, and writers. Providing regular, quality blog posts, essays and newsworthy stories written by autistic writers and others that inform, enlighten and educate. Providing a newsletter of potential opportunities for writers and artists on the spectrum to showcase their work. Helping artists, writers, and film makers learn new skills through mentorship and developing their entrepreneurship skills\n\nWe raise awareness about autism and the Arts and collaborate with many like-minded organizations to promote our missions.

Collaborating with like-minded organizations for art exhibits, neurodiversity panels, and other events.\n\nProviding a newsletter of opportunities to subscribers.\n\nProviding online events which encourage participation.\n\nEnhancing social media and website presence by topical blogs and promotion of art.\n\nProviding mentorship opportunities.

Our organization at the present time is an all-volunteer organization. We rely on our board and our committees to promote our mission. We are in the process of trying to find funding for a Director.

In the first eight months of 2018 through our compensation for neurodivergent bloggers initative the Art of Autism has paid 25 autistic bloggers over $1,500. The money comes from FB birthdays.\n\nArtists who have participated in our exhibits have made over $8,000. We’ve displayed art from 23 artists in different venues. \n\nOur online DRLC/Art of Autism art contest has allowed us to pay $400 to 7 neurodivergent artists. 34 artists participated in the art contest.\n\nThrough the Exploring Diagnosis project four artists have earned $1,000 each and have been mentored by professional film creators. Upon delivery of their products in 2019 they will each be paid an additional $1,500 each.\n\nThrough our partnership with Apple Computers 7 autistic artists were given Ipad Pros to create their art.\n\nWe negotiated a licensing fee for 1 artist.
