About Autism’s Got Talent
Since 2012 we have created a legendary show ‘Autism’s Got Talent’, that has received high media attention. Unlike other talent shows the evening will have many surprises and delights as children and adults showcase and perform before a live audience.
This show is a star studded spectacular event will showcase amazingly talented performances by adults and children with autism. The performers consist of singers, actors, musicians and dance troupes, will fly the flag for autism and show what people with autism are capable of. Autism’s Got Talent provides a platform and great opportunity to replace negative aspects with hope, fun, laughter, and inclusion. This showcase is unique to any other projects across the world.
“We aim to continue to build Autism’s Got Talent year by year and we want all those involved to have fun, do what they love, make friends and be themselves, and have one night which is all about them.” Anna Kennedy.
Most of the acts have spring boarded into exclusive opportunities and the audience feel a rare emotion of hope and belonging and part of a unique network and understanding that anything is possible. Every year promises a showcase of a huge variety of performers. In previous years there has been a stand-up performer, harpist, rappers, young author, acclaimed ballet dancer, opera singers as well as a bone breaker, who is now the face of Calvin Klein.
Talent entries are totally mind blowing and Anna Kennedy Online have included acts from all over the world and across the UK.
With more than 500,000 people diagnosed with autism in the UK it is easy to simply label these people. The fact is that autism is an often-misunderstood disorder and while it can be difficult for those affected to express themselves they are often highly intelligent and able people who can achieve extraordinary things, but often in their own way.
Recognising the uniqueness of those with autism Anna Kennedy, who has two sons with the condition, has worked tirelessly to find ways of recognising the ability not the disability in these individuals. The Autism’s Got Talent event is one of the ways of recognising that ability and will showcase the performing talents of a whole host of talent.
Describing the event Anna Kennedy shared: “This is a great opportunity for those with autism to get up on stage and really show what they can do. So often society views these people as difficult and uncommunicative, but this event will really dispel that myth with some fantastic talent on display.”
This whole concept is based solely on inclusion and there needs to be more, which is why we have started roadshows. Unlike other talent shows the evening will have many surprises and delights as children and adults showcase and perform before a live audience.
Autism’s Got Talent, which is an annual event, is growing in popularity each year, and has firmly cemented its status as a leading charity and autism event.
