Magical Women

Change will only happen if it begins at the top and with the significant lack of neurodivergent and autistic female artist leaders in the arts, Elinor decided to set up Magical Women. Her own neurodivergent traits inform her practice and she safely journeys with contributors and participants to explore their power and voice using art. Magical Women calls for autistic/ADHD neurodivergent and survivor female artists to be trusted, believed and invested in to make work.

Elinor runs Magical Women with a team of Access workers and Magical Women Resident contributors using her art industry background, Jungian art psychotherapy practice and mentorship experience to empower those who need it most.
