The Neurodiversity Umbrella Project

2024 Neurodiversity Umbrella Project Brochure

Dare to Think Different!

View the 2024 NUP Brochure!


The Neurodiversity Umbrella Project is an uplifting visual representation of all the different minds we have here in the UK.

Every Umbrella Project installation helps to raise awareness and understanding of neurodiversity. Thousands of colourful umbrellas are strung together over public spaces, in schools, and in company buildings around the nation. Each display is designed to represent the one in five of us who have a neurodevelopmental condition, such as ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia or Tourette’s syndrome. These conditions fall under the umbrella term of neurodiversity.

We are changing the perception of neurodiverse/neurodivergent people and celebrating all the many strengths that come from thinking differently.
