Welsh Autism Shows

Welsh Autism Shows 2018

The Welsh Autism Shows are aimed at parents, carer, individuals with autism and professionals and are free to attend. They provide face to face access to the services, resources and provisions that are there to help individuals and families living with autism, and the professionals that support them.

A full day packed with exhibitors showcasing their products and services, seminars on topics that matter, and the opportunity to meet with other individuals, families and professionals – all to help you get the help you need.

The shows comprise of 3 national events held in South, North and West Wales giving local communities the chance to access the services available to them.

The flagship show is held in Cardiff City Stadium in the Capital of Wales and is attended by over 1400 visitors. The roadshows are held in Llandudno (North Wales) and Aberystwyth (West Wales).

The 2018 Show dates, locations, venues and times:

The Welsh Autism Shows – West Wales – Aberystwyth University – Friday 13th April 10am – 4pm VISIT WEST WALES

The Welsh Autism Shows – North Wales – Venue Cymru, Llandudno – Friday 8th June 10am – 4pm VISIT NORTH WALES

The Welsh Autism Shows – South Wales – Cardiff City Stadium – Friday 28th September 10am – 4pm VISIT SOUTH WALES

Opportunities exist for organisations, support groups, business and all kinds of services to exhibit and sponsor the shows – and we want to make this accessible to all with generous discounts for the 3rd sector and not-for-profit groups so they can take part.

For visitors there are the exhibitors to talk to, seminars to listen in to, and the opportunity for one-to-one clinics with some of the organisations that can provide that specialist and bespoke support for your needs.

If you are an individual living with autism, a family member, or a professional that supports this community, then these Welsh Autism Shows are for you. We don’t believe that charging the autism community to access the shows is just or right, so visitor tickets are entirely free.

Please register for your free tickets before the Shows here All those that pre-register will have a fast track entrance to the shows.

FACT – Creative Residency Opportunity

This is an incredible residency opportunity for DAC members. If you are interested in applying for this please feel free to contact us for advice.

As part of FACT and Culture Liverpool’s The Future World of Work programme, we are announcing an open call for workplace-based creative residencies. FACT invites artists and creative practitioners to submit proposals exploring how new working practices, business processes, and technologies are changing working life.

The programme will include six fully-funded residencies to develop creative workplace interventions, in partnership with businesses in the Liverpool City Region. Drawing upon artistic inquiry and research methods, this project aims to engage artists with employers to stimulate debate with businesses, policymakers and the public at large.

The programme is an exciting opportunity for artists to develop their practice whilst immersed in an authentic working environment. By appraising the norms, idiosyncrasies and broader sectoral developments for a specific workplace, the residency is a platform to interrogate late capitalism’s technology zeitgeist, stimulating new dialogues around the social implications of innovations in the workplace. 

Outcomes will be presented in an exhibition at FACT in Spring 2019.

A resident fee of £2500, with £1500 for travel and accommodation and £2000 towards production will be awarded for work carried out between May – October 2018 in the Liverpool City Region, UK.

For further details and an application form please visit here

Deadline for Applications: Monday 16 April 2018, 10am.


Last Chance to see richard III redux – tonight

richard III redux [or] ‘Sara Beer [is/not] richard III’

Richard III: Bogeyman. Villain. Evil incarnate. Or is he? What if he is she? What if the ‘hideous…. deformed, hobbling, hunchbacked cripple’ is portrayed by someone funny, female, feminist, and with the same form of scoliosis?  How might the story change, the body change, the acting change, the character change when explored by a disabled actress with deadly comic timing and a dislike for horses? How would previous star vehicle Richards measure up? Olivier, McKellan, Pacino, Sher – watch out – the mighty richard III redux has you in the frame.

Riotously inventive and joyously irreverent, richard III redux is not a production of Shakespeare’s classic, but an interweaving of stories about acting, difference, and a maligned historical figure told by unreliable narrator Sara Beer. She takes on Richard as a solo performer in a number of guises, interspersed with video and live camera sequences. The production premiered at Cardiff’s Chapter Arts Centre on International Women’s Day, 8 March 2018 and has had great reviews – see


The production incorporates creative captioning.

Your last chance to see this show is: 23 March – Small World Theatre, Cardigan

Cast and Creative Team

Performer: Sara Beer

Playwright: Kaite O’Reilly (Follow Kaite on Twitter: @kaiteoreilly)

Director: Phillip Zarrilli

Videographer: Paul Whittaker
