CELEBRATING DEAF CULTURE

It’s New Zealand Sign Language Week. This is an opportunity to focus on access to the arts for Deaf and hearing impaired people. New Zealand Sign Language is one of New Zealand’s three official languages and I’m always pleased when producers, presenters and galleries include NZSL interpretation in their planning and budgets so that Deaf people can be included in their audience……….

Check out the rest of the Arts Access article about Deaf Culture and why we celebrate it since NZSL became an official language in 2006.
