Save the dates for a week full of informative videos and celebrate our communities!
Communication builds pathways between people, nurtures relationships and strengthens communities – Which is why the team at Wavefront Centre is bringing virtual celebrations to your fingertips.
This week we celebrate International Week of the Deaf 2021 (September 20 to 26). Save the dates for a week full of informative videos to learn more and celebrate our communities! This video series will cover the themes for each day throughout the week including Cherishing the Deaf History, Sustainable Deaf Leadership, Sign languages for All Deaf Learners, We Sign for Human Rights, Intersectional Deaf Communities, Deaf Culture and Arts, and Human Rights in Times of Crisis.
Premiers are at 9 AM PT everyday. Stay tuned!
To celebrate with our communities, we have hosted an in-person community gathering on September 25 at Rocky Point Park. There are many things that Rocky Point Park offers and it has an accessible pathway, SkyTrain access and parking. The event is free and there is plenty to do for all ages.
We are glad to see so many of our community members again on September 25. A big THANK YOU to everyone who attended our gathering and celebrated International Week of the Deaf 2021 with a fun day of socializing, exciting games and dragon boating experience.
*Additional health and safety precautions and practices were in place during the event.
