Animate Autism is a new project offering one-to-one workshops in filmmaking, animation, photography, post-production or digital art. Participants will develop a creative project of their own with the support and guidance of professional filmmaker and project manager Sophie Broadgate. Sessions will be tailored around the interests and needs of each participant.

If you or someone you know is interested in taking part please register below. 

For more information contact Sophie:

Workshops take place at Signal Film and Media, Cooke’s Studios, 104 Abbey road, Barrow, LA14 5QR

Light refreshments will be provided.

Children under 16 must have an identified adult drop them off and pick them up, so please state on the application form. If this is not possible, please let us know in advance.

“We are so excited to be starting this project, we see a gap in the support and activities available for girls and women with Autism. I can’t wait to meet these young women and see what projects we can make together!

– Sophie Broadgate, Signal Film & Media Project Manager


The project is running from March up until June, once we receive your registration form we will be in touch to book an introduction session.
