21 conversations about dyslexia: documentary launch

Dyslexia video

A new documentary on dyslexia has been launched at Oxford.

Dyslexia at Oxford is a visual film and photography project about dyslexia in conversation with students, alumni, staff, tutors, and researchers at Oxford University and Oxford Brookes University, as well as members of the local community.

Through a series of 21 conversations, explores the strengths and challenges of having dyslexia and being neurodiverse. Many of the stories point to a structural lack of inclusion in education and access to information about dyslexia and neurodiversity more widely. This project celebrates our different ways of thinking, the stronger teams that can be created and the benefit to society if difference is valued, supported and seen as part of what makes us human.

The video was produced by Olivia Williamson of the Ruskin School of Art with many collaborators (named in the YouTube description below) and hosted by The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH).
