Autism, Gardening and Creativity: A Conversation with The Autistic Gardener
24 January @ 18:30 – 19:30
As his name suggests, Alan Gardner is a gardener. He came to national attention when he was on Channel 4’s The Autistic Gardener, a series that highlighted his gardening skills, his flamboyance and his ability to work with autistic gardeners to create beautiful work. Alan has kindly agreed to talk with Cos about autistic gardening and expressing himself through colourful attire and make up.
Cos Michael got her autism diagnosis aged 50 and advocates for more knowledge about autism and ageing. After a career in theatre and broadcasting she spent several years leading NAS Autism and Ageing projects, and now works as an autism and ageing consultant and trainer. Cos speaks at conferences in the UK and abroad.
There will be Q&As following the conversation.
Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating conversation and Q&A session!
This is one of an occasional series of autism-related talks offered by AutAngel, which is a community interest company run by and for autistic adults. We rely on the generosity of your contributions to provide these talks, and we want them to be available to all so the tickets are by donation.
It’s important to us to be able to welcome people regardless of financial means; however we have significant running costs, so we ask that if, if you are able to, you donate a minimum of £5.00.
We send a recording to everyone who gets a ticket for the event. It helps us if you let us know if you aren’t planning to attend live.
