Autscape 2020: Vision
Monday 27 July – Thursday 30 July 2020
Venue: Online (Zoom)

Autscape is a conference with a difference. Rather than talking to a primarily non-autistic audience about autism, this conference is specifically by and for autistic people. Some of it isn't even about autism at all! Non-autistic people are also welcome, but the environment and content of the event are centred around autistic people’s needs, interests and sensitivities.

Autscape lasts three days in which there are workshops, leisure activities, social opportunities, and more, all specifically oriented to the needs and preferences of autistic people.

The Autscape board regrets to announce that, due to the continuing social distancing measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, this year's in-person conference at Giggleswick School has had to be cancelled.

So Autscape 2020 will be an entirely online event. This will include online discussions and informal sessions on similar lines to a physical Autscape event, as well as live streaming of presentations. We are continuing to prepare, with over 100 registrations received so far.
