The As I See It exhibition features photographs taken of and by people of different ages and gender with varying levels of autism. The exhibition runs from tomorrow until 4 November at The Gallery on Charing Cross Road, London. It will then travel throughout the UK as part of the Think Differently About Autism campaign (www.think-differently.org.uk)

Article from today's Observer here

I'm planning to be in London tomorrow afternoon so hope to be able to look in myself.

The address seems to be:

The Gallery
125 Charing Cross Rd
London, WC2H 0EW

(between Leicester Square and Tottenham Court Road stations on the West side of Charing Cross Road)

Wish I could see that. But I live in the US.

Maybe you could organise a meet in the meets thread, though it is short notice for today. What time are going to be in Charing cross roughly?

I might be able to go today. Or otherwise it would be a good meet for another day.

More information now available here.

Not sure what time I'll be there yet but probably towards the end of the day.

I'd love to go, but I don't have the financial means to do so.

I looked in late this afternoon. Pleasant enough: intersting and enjoyable but not very substantial. Much of it I'd seen already in yesterday's Observer. This is part of a big NAS campaign to increase public awareness and understanding of autism.

Hard to tell how successful this will be, but I wish them luck.

There was only one other person there. The gallery was actually closed but entrance to the exhibition was via Foyle's next door.
