Layla Mackay

Layla MackayMy name is Layla Rudneva-Mackay. I am a 36-year-old dyslexic living in Auckland. I’m an artist and a mother who is currently completing a Doctorate in Fine Arts at Auckland University.

I’m interested in a range of possible developments for Dyslexics of all ages:

  • The creation of a wider understanding of Dyslexia in order for society to accommodate Dyslexics.
  • Increased accessibility for Dyslexics in education and the work place.
  • The development of a Dyslexic community and a place for Dyslexics to access new technologies and learn to operate in the ‘text world’ of modern society.

I’m also interested in how my artistic practice can raise awareness of difference.
