This session aims to generate interest in the unique aspects of Deaf language and culture. Led by Deaf artist Luke King, the session will include an introduction to Auslan and a brief overview of Deaf history. Auslan is a visual language that is completely distinct from English and other spoken languages. Luke will discuss diversity amongst the d/Deaf community, communication etiquette and demonstrate some introductory Auslan signs.
The latter half of the session will cover the use of Auslan and other access methods for d/Deaf people in arts spaces. Luke will also highlight the work of local and international d/Deaf artists. This will be followed by a Q and A with workshop participants.
Access note: KINGS Artist-Run is a wheelchair accessible venue, unfortunately there is no wheelchair accessible toilet. This event will be delivered in Auslan with english interpreters present for hearing audiences. We endeavor to make this a COVIDSafe event, masks will be available and social distancing will be encouraged.
