Event description

Description

A full-day workshop for Cumbrian museum colleagues interested in ensuring adults and children with autism have the best experience of our museums.

What do you understand by the term ‘autism’? How do we welcome visitors with autism most effectively? Have you thought about autism from the perspectives of colleagues or creative practitioners? How is the difference of autism itself welcome in our museums?

We have a range of people presenting, all of whom are speaking about autism from a personal or professional viewpoint.

Dr Kate Fox, Poet and Stand-up Comedian with autism https://katefoxwriter.wordpress.com/
