Deaf Awareness Week 2013

With Deaf Awareness Week 2013 coming to an end, social media has played its part. In addition to the usual communication tips (these are especially noteworthy and humorous 1 2 3)  there have been significant news events circulating the internet.

3 topics that have got people talking:

1. Comments on The Guardian’s article: ‘Lack of British Sign Language interpreters putting deaf people at risk“.

2. Gerry Hughes returns from his solo voyage. (metro) (bbc)

3. Rocky Horror BSL Flashmob

Here at Stage and Sign we love a flashmob! Especially one that is based on a musical and very especially one that includes BSL. Lauren Harris arranged this crazy, sexy fun for an interpreted performance. Join the Facebook event for videos and pictures, read the article via Limping Chicken.

So this post involves no original content but it’s all about sharing. Happy Deaf Awareness Week to all.
