International Aspergers Day Fundraiser


Join us to celebrate International Aspergers Day on Monday February 18th. Why not come straight from work?  We have a special treat in store - Jacci Pillar will be performing her new show!

Note: venue has changed to:  Conference Room, Phoenix Park Community Centre, 22 Roby Roy Rd, Malvern East. 

About Jacci

Recently arrived to live in Melbourne from the Northern Territory, Jacci Pillar is a Comedian and Anthropologist; Autistic-ly solving conundrums people don’t know they have! 

Her show “Labelled” is a comedic, audio-visual storytelling journey about growing up Autistic and the politics of neurodiversity.  It recently toured from Darwin to Alice Springs to finish up at Sydney and Melbourne Fringe Festivals in 2018. Join us for a new special installment: Labelled II: Tickets on Myself, just for International Aspergers Day 2019.  Download flyer here.

The second installment of the show is a cheeky look at the Aspergers world from the 1970’s to now and just how far we have come in the way we look at difference as a culture; from the medical model to social model of ability.  It’s feisty and educational, with a healthy dose of feel-good funny medicine. 

Come along and join in our celebrations of Aspergers and our strengths at this fun night, with time to catch up with your peers as well.

Thank you to Jacci for offering this show for our community and as a fundraiser to support our not for profit!
