Breathing Again follows Palmers Green resident Patrick Samuel, an artist with autism and ADHD, as he prepares for his sixth solo exhibition. Shot on location in Broomfield Park, Patrick, accompanied by his emotional support dog Chase, shares what it’s like living and coping with autism, how art has changed his life and why going to the park is such an important part of his daily routine.
Breathing Again is the short film that premiered at @The_Dugdale. Shot in #BroomfieldPark as I was preparing the exhibition, the film gives a glimpse into how I use art as a coping mechanism, and the park as inspiration.
Patrick's exhibition, Passing Time - Moments in Broomfield Park, continues until 27th October at the Dugdale Centre.
Your invitation to a guided tour of the exhibition
On Thursday 18th October, between 5pm and 7pm, Patrick will be personally guiding visitors around the 37 pictures and their accompanying poems. Hear the stories behind each of these pieces and ask any questions along the way.
As someone with autism and ADHD, these guided tours offer Patrick an opportunity to use his art to engage with the community and increase his social skills and confidence. Join him for a wonderful, relaxed and friendly tour.
