The following is excerpted from a release issued by Theatre Interpreting Services.
Theatre Interpreting, a group of Deaf Vancouver-based performing artists and interpreters, will be offering a 10-week ASL course to provide basic communication techniques. The course will also include education around Deaf culture and other protocols on engaging with members from the d/Deaf community. This workshop is for people who have no or very little knowledge of sign language, with the goal of providing basic communication techniques in order to introduce yourself and have a conversation. Theatre ASL is looking for ways to implement inclusive artistic practices and engagement with the arts.
