Here at Neuro Pride Ireland we are looking for your support.
We want to share our pride and let you know about Neuro Pride Ireland, which we are running for the first time this year.
Neuro Pride is a celebration of Neurodivergent (ND) culture and identities, and a chance for Neurodivergent people from all communities and walks of life to learn from each other and build connections through a wide variety of online events. It’s also an opportunity for allies (parents, partners, friends, colleagues, neighbours, service providers of Neurodivergent people) to learn more about what it means to be Neurodivergent and how they can best support and celebrate the ND people in their own communities. Below is a ‘constellation’ graphic showing some of the Neurodivergent identities; we’ll be exploring these more and hosting informational videos about ND experiences on our YouTube channel – subscribe to see the videos as they’re posted!
It would also be great if you could use your platform to signal boost the festival so that it reaches ND people connected with you who might not yet have heard of us. Please do let your Neurodivergent volunteers and community members know that they are more than welcome to submit a video, piece of writing, artwork, photo, etc. to Neuro Pride Ireland expressing why they’re proud to be neurodivergent.
If you yourself would like to submit a message of support and solidarity, that would also be great! Ally and community submissions can both be made at: https://forms.gle/ajTuCj4RDbgienoU7 or by emailing us.
We have listed our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram handles below; we’ll be sharing the Neuro Love under the hashtags #NeuroPrideIreland and #NeuroPride21 and invite you to like, tag, and retweet us to help us reach the Neurodivergent people in all our communities. Below is a shareable poster we’d love you to share – you can find a Screen Reader accessible version of this poster, as well as copies of the other graphic elements, by accessing this folder here https://tinyurl.com/NPImedia.
