Deaf Hope Summer Workshop
Young Deaf Hope are holding a summer workshop for 11-16yrs & 16-25yrs – each group will have 2 sessions each.
The workshop will be about Human Rights and Deaf Identity – it sounds very heavy but the team have organised the workshop so it is fun and interactive with T-shirt designing and interactive play to appeal from the 11 to 25 year olds.
It is aimed at Deaf young people of whatever communication preferences (as we have interpreters booked for the workshop) and also their siblings. They will need to be booked under a new booking but we cover for them too.
It will be local at Tooting Hub, Wandsworth and upon booking their places, the Wandsworth Youth Service will send the supporting material for the workshop.
It is booked via Eventbrite with the links being:
