The London Borough of Waltham Forest will be celebrating Autistic Pride Day 2022 this year and we are looking local groups and residents to help us celebrate. The event will take place on 17 June 2022 at Fellowship Square from approx. 3pm to 6.30pm.

We will also be celebrating Learning Disability Week with events being held at Fellowship Square on Monday 20 June and Tuesday 21 June 2022.  

We are looking for the following:

Performers

If you are part of a local performance group, for example, singing or dancing or even creative writing and reading, and you would like to celebrate by performing for our residents we would love to hear from you. We are especially keen to hear from those with a link to our autistic community.

Speakers

We are also looking for people with a link to our autistic community, who would like to share their experiences of living with autism with our attendees.
