YOUNG people from Pembrokeshire with autistic spectrum disorder and Asperger's feature in a new documentary on Radio 4.

This summer children and young people from Milford Haven, Haverfordwest, Narberth and The Rhos were given disposable cameras, and asked to take pictures of the things that interested them.

For these children, talking about their emotions, their feelings and the things that fascinate them can be very difficult.

The cameras were given to them, and to their families, by artists Daniel Settatree and Catherine Dyson.

They wanted to explore the potential for developing an artistic practice that would give a voice to the experiences of children and young people with ASD, and the people in their lives.

Having both worked with children with ASD, Daniel and Catherine felt there was a lack of creative opportunities for this community, that the creative potential of this diverse group was being forgotten, and that as a consequence our society is missing out on something.

The photographs were displayed in October at the spacetocreate gallery in Haverfordwest, alongside 'film poems' written by Daniel and Catherine in response to the images.

The pair also hope to create a book of the images to raise funds for the National Autistic Society's Milford Haven youth group, and share the stories of those living with autism and Asperger’s.

The collaborative art project was part of a National Theatre Wales located residency, which provides opportunities for artists to spend research and development time looking at new ideas for performance that are embedded in a location or community.

The residencies are supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation.

The Radio 4 programme - The Art of Living: In My Mind's Eye - was aired in December and is still available on the station's website, or the BBC Sounds app.
