MORE About the sessions

Open to people aged 16+ who are autistic or similarly neurodivergent (ADHD, AuDHD, dyspraxia, dyslexia, etc), no diagnosis needed.

You do not need any experience in zine-making, art or writing. You’re welcome to come to the workshop, just observe and listen, and use your resource pack at another time if that’s how you prefer to participate.

We will be encouraging zine-making across visual arts (drawing, collage) and writing (fact and fiction, long-form and poetry) and both analogue and digital methods.

All materials, resources and snacks are supplied (but you can bring your own allergen-free snacks too2).

There will be a zine library and chill out area. You are free to move about the space as you need to.

All participants will be posted a pack of materials and resources (sample zines, paper, collage elements, etc).

16th and 26th March are non-speaking, text-only sessions for those who prefer to communicate digitally.
