Deaf Culture Without Borders

from 25.00

November 1: 9:30 a.m. - 12:00 a.m.

Are you an arts organization or arts manager who wants to know best practices for including d/Deaf artists and audiences? This workshop highlights Canadian d/Deaf artists and the challenges they face; goes over common mistakes made by organizations seeking to engage with this population; and gives you the tools to partner with d/Deaf artists and participants.

Deaf Culture Without Borders is facilitated by Landon Krentz, general manager of Theatre Terrific and the only Deaf arts administrator on the West Coast of Canada. Landon is fluent in both American Sign Language (ASL) and English. He is an advocate for the inclusion of d/Deaf artists within the larger theatre community so that Deafness is looked upon as a reflection of diversity rather than as a disability.

The BC Alliance for Arts + Culture is proud to announce that this workshop has been subsidized by the Somerville Fund held at the Vancity Community Foundation, so you can attend for free. To get free access to this session, please enter the coupon code WELCOME when prompted by the form.
