HEIDI | PD MIRKA MORA & PRUE STEVENSON WITH AMAZE

Heidi Museum of Modern Art launches it 2019 Professional Development program with a unique experience featuring contemporary artist Prue Stevenson and Amaze, the peak body for autistic people, their families and supporters in Victoria. This PD begins with a guided tour of the exhibition Mirka Mora: Pas de Deux—Drawings and Dolls, after which Prue and Amaze representative Fiona Ransley, will lead a presentation and discussion of autism and autistic self-regulating behaviours such as stimming, and toys as comfort objects. Prue, who is autistic herself, will also facilitate a practical drawing and embroidery workshop, connecting concepts explored during the day.
