Join us for a series of short and informative virtual webinars to celebrate a new state-of-the-art facility in Vancouver. Celebrate communication accessibility and services offered at Wavefront Centre for Communication Accessibility.
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. While we cannot gather in-person, you can still tune-in to our virtual event, which will be streamed on Facebook, and YouTube.
Every virtual event during International Week of the Deaf will be streamed on Facebook and YouTube.
Every session will be ASL friendly and include closed captioning. Choose your preferred virtual platform and join us, in your home, or with your trusted pandemic bubble, and celebrate together! Click here to register for the Virtual Celebration of Accessibility.
Today, we will learn more about the International Week of the Deaf and its history. Joined by the President of the World Federation of the Deaf, we will meet several National Leaders sharing their inspiration in a nation-wide challenge.
Our ASL team of Deaf experts invited several local and national Deaf leaders to share powerful messages about their passion. Compassion fatigue is common in leaders but we will learn about what keeps them going and what their ‘fire’ is along with some words of wisdom.
The Power of Media: Sign Language Preservation & Exposure
On International Day of Sign Languages, we will learn more about how we can further preserve and expose sign languages through the power of the media. A presentation is delivered by an internationally renowned Deaf actor and advocate and a promotional video from the Canadian Youth Deaf Film Festival.
