What is it like to be Deaf in today’s society?  Why are Deaf peoples’
experiences important in understanding their struggles/presence in society?
What does being Deaf mean to you and what is Deaf Culture?  Can you explain
this to people who ask?  These are but a few of the questions that will be
covered by the Deafhood all day workshops in early 2015.  Two are due to be
held in Dublin and two in Dungiven Co. Derry/Londonderry.  John Bosco Conama
and Teresa Lynch will be joined by Alvean Jones to facilitate the workshops.
