Cafe Scientifique

Cafe Scientifique

Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. We've been holding them in Bournemouth for ten years and are very pleased to have returned to in-person events as of June 2022.

We hold these events at The Black Cherry, a fantastic new venue in Boscombe, Bournemouth. Events will start at 6:30pm, but we encourage you to arrive from 5:30pm to enjoy a drink and something to eat before the talk starts.

Autism - from 'acceptance' to celebration

Dr Rachel Moseley

Tuesday 5 July 2022

Autism is a stigmatised and poorly understood condition, plagued by stereotypes and misconceptions. Merging her neuroscientific expertise and lived experience, Dr Rachel Moseley will explain what autism is (and what it isn’t!), and consider how different models of disability affect how we see autism and autistic people.

We'll explore new research that suggests that many of the difficulties faced by autistic people may result from a 'disconnect' when people with different minds and brains interact with one another, and when someone with a minority type of brain lives in a world not designed for them.

This event has sold out. You can join the waiting list at the link below, or come along on the night, but we cannot guarantee entry if the venue is full.
