Autscape 2019: Making Connections
Monday 12 August – Thursday 15 August 2019
High Leigh Conference Centre, Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire, England

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 2019 Handbook for participants is now available. You do not need to print this yourself, as every participant will get a copy at the registration desk on arrival. But you can also get the PDF file here (2.4MB, updated 10 Aug). See the errata for the latest corrections.

Want a brief overview? See the slides for the Orientation presentation.
