“As a mother of two children with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), I have experienced many discoveries and journeys, as well as stigmas and social exclusion in my everyday life. To me, art is the international language we all speak without talking. Accordingly, I decided to deliver the message “I’m Different, Not Less” by Mural Art to raise awareness and inclusiveness of the public in terms of accepting people with ASD”. – Nino CHINCHARAULI
