Postponement of PARC conference / encouragement of online activity

Events

We are sorry to announce that we will be postponing the PARC Critical Autism Studies Conference that was scheduled for June 2nd 2020, probably until into the new year. With the cancellation and postponement of face-to-face events this year, we would like to encourage the PARC network to think creatively about sharing their ideas and work online.

Due to the current virus outbreak, PARC will be postponing activities between March and May and will be reviewing the situation as we move forward for the conference currently scheduled for June 2nd. We would however still like to celebrate five years of the PARC network and all that those involved have achieved.
