Summer Deaf Festival 2019

The Forum

May 24, 2019 from 10:00 to 16:00

Two days of celebrations, signposting for accessible advice, guidance and support for all people with a hearing loss and their families.

NDSF is returning to The Forum for its third year. The Festival celebrates the world of hearing loss while offering opportunities to share experiences, meet new people and access support. “We recognise that hearing loss can feel isolating” says Eleanor Craik, who is the NDSF Committee Chair Person and a deaf cochlear implant user herself. “The Festival aims to show people they are not alone and in fact, there is an incredible community and culture which exists around hearing loss”. Building on the success of previous events, NSDF will once again host a range of inspiring talks from d/Deaf and hard of hearing presenters. There will also be a number of national and local services attending, including Phonak and Norfolk and Norwich hospital. As a family friendly event there will be plenty of opportunity for all to get involved with activities, such as two workshops run by deaf artist Olivier Jarmin and a sign song workshop by a deaf and inspiring performer Paul Whittaker. There will be live captions and British Sign Language/English interpretation in order to ensure all can access the event.
