shy* play

shy* play at puntWG would like to extend our thanks to people that have been indispensable to this process of learning and creating neurodiverse socialities-in-difference.

Angelo Custodio has made us realise that neurodiverse voices and sounds are truly powerful in their capacity for artfulness and forms of communication. Thank you Angelo for working with us to create techniques that truly foreground neurodiverse voices in relation.

shy* play events never start from the idea that bodies are set; events create bodies. Thank you Karime Salame for creating wearables that never land, but remain in the process of always expressing themselves/ourselves differently.

Thank you Rajni Shah for creating reading group events with us that prioritise listening, eliminating the reading group as a test, debate, or practice of dominance by those who 'know' over others. Reading, as Rajni teaches us so eloquently, is an embodied practice that accommodates all the senses.

A space is always more than what meets the eye. Thank you Andrés Novo for exploring the space with us deeper. Without your help and insights, a shy* play space at PuntWG would never have been made possible.

And lastly, thank you Faysal Mroueh for making shy* play a virtual reality. This website inhabits such an important meeting point. Thank you also for keeping up with us and our endless little requests.

shy* play would also like to thank four institutions that made shy* play at puntWG an ever-changing presence: puntWG, Amsterdam Fund for the Arts, Stichting Stokroos, and DAS Research.
