Osprey Charging reveals artwork celebrating Autism Acceptance Week
New artwork created by autistic artist Rebecca Ellis will be placed across Osprey EV chargers to celebrate Autism Acceptance Week (27 March to 2 April).
Ellis is a 31 year old artist who was awarded £1000 for her artwork The Acceptance Journey to be printed onto high-quality wraps and exhibited on 21 of Osprey’s chargers at rapid charging locations across the country, including Croydon, Dover, Blackburn and Ayr.
Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging, said: “At Osprey we are building an EV charging network that is open to all, and it’s therefore critical for us to show our support for communities who are often underrepresented. By converting our EV chargers into galleries for artwork we are honouring themes that have been suggested by our staff and customers, whilst bringing attention to some important causes and organisations.”
Rebecca Ellis said: “The Acceptance Journey represents the steps we are taking to reach autism acceptance and awareness. I wanted the piece to be colourful and positive as we work together as a community to reduce stigma, embrace neurodiversity and increase understanding.”
