Backup to host session on neurodiversity at PLASA Show – AV Magazine

Backup will host a session about the AV sector and neurodiversity, at this year’s PLASA Show in London.

Neurodiversity and our Industry – the Advantages and Challenges, which will take place on 4 September, will discuss how the industry naturally attracts neurodiverse people and how their creative and unique ways of solving problems can make the impossible possible. It will also address the challenges that neurodiverse people face and how the industry can properly support them in their working environment.

Host Jess Allan from Backup will be joined by counsellor/psychotherapist Chris Madden; Mig Burgess, co-chair of the Association of British Theatre Technicians and Mental Health First Aid (England) instructor; freelance lighting designer Daisy Simmons, who graduated this year and was diagnosed as autistic in 2019; Dinesh Sattee, a freelance technician working in theatre, who was diagnosed with autism as a child; and experienced mix engineer Phil Wright, who was diagnosed with ADHD in childhood and more recently with autism.
