AUStism 2021

After months of waiting, we’re thrilled to announce new dates for our AUStism event series in March 2021!  Join us in Brisbane on the 23rd of March and Sydney on the 25th of March, or via livestream for both events, for an evening of real stories from an incredible line up of speakers.

What is AUStism?

Stories to challenge, inform and inspire…

Autism presents differently for every person diagnosed. It’s a ‘spectrum’ of experience, with many wonderful, and sometimes challenging, ‘shades’ for the people living with it and those who love them.

At Autism Awareness Australia, we are committed to raising awareness and understanding of all types of autism, and thus we are excited to announce that our AUStism speaker series is returning in 2021 with an incredible line up of national presenters! An evening of real stories from real people – funny, tough, compelling, bittersweet and guaranteed to touch and inspire.
