Happy National Week of Deaf People 2023!
Today’s theme is “Achieving Sign Language Rights for All”
As part of the National Week of Deaf People celebrations, Deaf Connect has been displaying banners promoting Auslan and National Week of Deaf People in cities around the country.
The billboards and banners have displayed messages encouraging people to learn Auslan, a step in the right direction.
Deaf Connect was also excited to work with Brisbane City Council to promote this important week!
On Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 of September we will turn the Story Bridge, Wickham Terrace Car Park and Breakfast Creek Bridge blue as part of the ‘Shining a Blue Light on Sign Languages‘ initiative started by World Federation of the Deaf in 2022.
