Heroes of the Imagination


??Touretteshero Presents: Heroes of the Imagination??

The world’s first Tourettes superhero will soon be landing in the Art Gallery for a series of interactive, inclusive and incredible superhero-themed activities. Get ready to discover your powers, create your own superhero identity, and use your imagination to change the world. Touretteshero and her team will be there to help you transform: make a mask, create a cape, perfect your moves, and launch your new superhero in our magical photo studio.

Touretteshero needs you! Bring your ideas, excitement and energy to celebrate difference and save the world from excessive dullness. Join us for a relaxed, free, accessible, multi-sensory experience for disabled and non-disabled children (and their grown up sidekicks).
