To the Deaf and CODA Communities of Ireland
My name is Catherine Dunphy. I am the music lead on the TEDx Dun Laoghaire team.
We would like to invite you to our FREE of charge ISL TEDx Dun Laoghaire 2020 speaker event this Thursday 12th at 8pm YOUTH event and
Wednesday 18th at 8pm YOUNG at HEART event.
TEDx Dun Laoghaire’s ethos is all about inclusion.
In 2019 we had a deaf speaker, Joanne Chester, on our panel of speakers with a talk entitled ‘Not just Deaf’ and we had ISL interpreters for each of our talks.
We are the only TEDx event that went ahead virtually in Ireland this year on October 23rd.
We are also the only TEDx event which has a Youth section called ‘Young Changemakers,’ making the programme suitable for teenagers and adults alike.
The virtual event this Thursday and the following Wednesday will have Catherine White as the ISL interpreter for each talk and has been
created specially for the Deaf and CODA communities.
I have attached some information about the talks and the speakers.
Please complete the registration form for both the Young Changemakers and Young at Heart event.
Joanne Chester talk will also feature along with some music with both ISL and a video from Lámh signs.
We would love if you could pass this information on to as many Deaf schools, Units and other Deaf and CODA Community groups so that as many people as possible join this event.
I look forward to your reply. Please feel free to contact any of us for more information.
