Autscape 2016: Identity
Tuesday 16 August – Friday 19 August 2016
Giggleswick School, Settle, North Yorkshire, UK

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.

Information Pack

The information pack for participants is now available. These are PDF documents which may require Acrobat Reader or another PDF reader. Alternatively, you may convert the PDF to another E-Reading format, eg. .EPUB or .AZW3, using a web-based conversion tool such as To ePub.

There are two different versions of the Programme Timetable. The first provides an at-a-glance summary of the main events. The second provides detail on smaller discussion groups, specific leisure activities and the like.
