Are we really listening to our Deaf community?

Too many hearing people view deafness as a deficiency rather than a separate linguistic context and worldview. Addressing misconceptions of Deaf people and their culture in Aotearoa, this panel discussion will be conducted entirely in New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) and interpreted into spoken English.

NZSL is one of New Zealand’s three official languages, but is rarely given centre stage. Turning a spotlight on Sign Language, a conversation for the hearing and deaf will be guided by a Deaf facilitator to illuminate the misunderstanding of hearing people and frequently asked questions. Come and listen!
