Deaf History Collections

The Deaf History Collections website was officially launched on Friday 16 February at Sydney University.

A working group made up of Deaf Connect and Deaf Australia created the website to showcase the rich treasure trove of artefacts from Deaf organisations and community members nationally.

The website showcases over a century of historical photos, records and artefacts from the Australian Deaf community. Dr Breda Carty AO and Dr Susannah Lee were on hand to showcase and launch the website.
