Dr Dawn-Joy Leong

Singapore

Upon discovering she is Autistic at 42, Dawn-joy plunged into the tumultuous sea of autism research and immersive art, published and presented in Hong Kong, Australia, the U.K., South Korea, Japan and Singapore. In 2012, during her first year as PhD scholar in Australia, Dawn-joy met her beloved, Lucy Like-a-Charm, a rescued former racing Greyhound. Together the duo have traversed blended terrains of wonderment: dancing around pandiatonic-polyrhythmic fires, collecting oxymorons, finding new ways to sense the world and Be. They are now chronicling their adventures in a fully accessible, multimedia memoir fantasie.
