AWETISM 2020 Virtual Expo – Student Presenter Opportunity
Seeking Autistic Young People To Showcase Their Passions, Interests or Talents!
From: Chris Varney at the I CAN Network
A cornerstone of all of our work at I CAN is the importance of celebrating Autistic passions and interests. These are the things that bring us joy, comfort and allow the world to see what Autistics CAN do.
In the coming days we will be announcing the details of our AWETISM 2020 Virtual Expo (scheduled for Friday, 20 November), an online version via the event platform Vfairs of our annual flagship event that showcases the in-depth knowledge and talents of our young people.
The AWETISM 2020 Expo will be our biggest and best I CAN event to date!
We are putting out an early call for Autistic young people across Australia (ages 9-20) to express interest in delivering a (pre-recorded) brief online presentation about their particular passion, unique theory or talent.
In the past, we’ve had young people showcase everything from interpretative dance to singing to in-depth knowledge of sport, gaming, transport systems…and more!
PLEASE NOTE: Presentations will be pre-recorded via Zoom prior to the event guided by an I CAN team member. On the day you will still be able to view your talk live and be apart of the short Q&A following your talk.
Your presentation will also be available to view via Vfairs for one month following the event.
We are especially keen to have young people from our I CAN schools and online mentoring programs take part, but the invitation is open to Autistic young people nationwide.
Learn More and Express Your Interest
Interested young people should fill out this Expression of Interest form by Monday 28 September 2020. There are limited places available so be quick!
If you have any questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of the best parts of our work is watching Autistic young people gain confidence in sharing their passions and interests. We are so excited to bring this event to the public in November.
Please stay tuned for our official AWETISM Expo 2020 announcement in the coming days!
We look forward to hearing from you!
Chris, on behalf of the I CAN Team
