The Acceptance Journey by Rebecca Ellis.

Rebecca (31) is a researcher, artist, science communicator, and advocate for the neurodivergent community. Osprey has awarded her £1000 for her artwork The Acceptance Journey which is being printed into high quality wraps and exhibited on 21 of its chargers at the following rapid charging locations:

Purley Cross Retail Park, Croydon

Pearl and Trawl, Wadebridge

Rock Rose, Dover

Skymaster, Warrington

Thatcher’s Needle, Diss

Squirrel, Ludlow

Stourvale, Christchurch

Burger King St Oswalds, Gloucester

Willows, Blackburn

Allison Street Retail Park, Ayr

Osprey’s chargers have previously hosted artwork in celebration of Pride (July), Black History Month (October), UK Disability History Month (November) and International Day of People with Disabilities (December). It is the only UK charge point network using its charger real estate to display artwork that draws attention to and celebrates these important themes.

“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” said Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging. “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. I want to thank Rebecca for supporting us with this campaign. Her artwork will inspire drivers and others at our charging locations to consider and make choices that respect people with autism as well as all disabilities.”

“I’m hugely flattered that Osprey has chosen to display my artwork on their chargers” said Rebecca Ellis. “The Acceptance Journey represents the steps we are taking to reach autism acceptance and awareness. The books represent learning with key messages and themes written on their spines. I wanted the piece to be colourful and positive as we work together as a community to reduce stigma, embrace neurodiversity and increase understanding. Thanks to Osprey for giving me a platform to display my art whilst creating such a positive message. The charger artwork project shows allyship in supporting the autistic, neurodivergent and wider disabled communities with these fantastic campaigns.”
