On 13th December 2018, CRAE hosted Celebrating CRAEtivity: An Evening of Autistic Art & Music. This extra special event featured incredible performances.

World-renowned blind and autistic pianist Derek Paravicini, shared the stage with Professor Adam Ockleford (Director of the Applied Music Research Centre at the University of Roehampton). We were also treated to live painting and an exhibition by the autistic artist Patrick Samuel.

All proceeds from the evening were donated to two charities: The Choir with No Name who runs choirs for homeless and marginalised people, and Sounds of Intent, which supports the music education of children and young people and adults with disabilities.
