Colourful Umbrella Project returns to Liverpool

The ADHD Foundation, which is based in Liverpool, is bringing the Umbrella Project back to the city.

Organisers say that the project aims to raise awareness, and celebrate, a range of conditions under the umbrella term of 'neurodiversity', including ADHD, autism and dyslexia.

Hundreds of coloured umbrellas will be suspended above Church Alley, each one signed and decorated by neurodiverse children from across the city. They were asked to state their gifts, talents and abilities - their ‘super power’, with the aim of celebrating cognitive differences.

Since its initial launch in 2017 the project has expanded and the artwork will also go on display at Heathrow Airport.
