Deaf Day returned to City Lit after a three year break because of the pandemic.
More than 2,000 people came together on Saturday 23 April to celebrate Deaf culture and provision. It was an opportunity for the Deaf community to come together to socialise and network with organisations and charities from across the UK.
A lot had changed since Deaf Day 2019. The new Gallery enabled us to host Stephen Iliffe’s marvellous Deaf Mosaic exhibition, which brings together stunning images of Deaf people from across the country; and the newly refurbished second floor was one of the main floors filled by exhibitors.
A huge variety of organisations was at the event, including a number of deaf schools, colleges and universities such as Wolverhampton and Heriot-Watt, arts organisations like Deafinitely Theatre, and professional associations including the British Deaf Association and the Association of Lipspeakers.
