Update 01/09/2022 – This event has now ended. To learn more about the event, please visit our page on the The Sensory Supermarket (August 2022).
We are excited to announce that we will be hosting our Sensory Street immersive event at PEARL (Person-Environment-Activity Research Laboratory) in Dagenham. It is UCL’s first net zero carbon building and is a unique facility that explores the way people engage with their environment. In the past they have housed all sorts of different environments such as a train station, high street and town square, and this year we will be working with them to create an immersive supermarket inspired experience.
We are so pleased to be working with PEARL, as it is a location which gives us the ability to engage with people’s senses in a range of ways, such as through flooring, lighting, sound, smells and so much more. We want to bring to life our event using information that we’ve collected over the past year to make it reflect autistic people’s experiences and perspectives as much as possible.
Our event will be held in August 2022 and free tickets are available at: https://sensorysupermarket.eventbrite.com. We hope to make the event free for everyone but may limit the amount of people in the space at certain times to ensure that people can truly explore what we have created. We’re looking forward to exploring it with you! Want to learn more about our immersive event? Keep checking back on our website or follow our social media pages to find out when the tickets are released in the next few weeks!
Want to be involved in shaping our Immersive Event?
On the 24th of May we want to host an informal feedback group online on Microsoft Teams. This will be your first opportunity to find out more about what the event will be like and your chance to give us feedback on the design and plan.
We want our event to really reflect autistic people’s experiences and views, and so we would like to hear from as many people as possible. We welcome individuals who have not taken part in our previous groups as well as those who have.
Want to be involved in our online feedback session on the 24th of May (5:30-6:30pm)? If so, contact us by email, through our website or via social media.
