ASL Interpreted Tours

Hello! My name is Ciel Arbour-Boehme and I am contacting you from Theatre SKAM which is a Victoria-based alternative theatre company.
This year we are hosting the 10th Annual SKAMpede festival, which is a FREE live performance festival July 14 + 15 2018 along the Galloping Goose and Harbour Road. Theatre SKAM values accessibility immensely which is why we are offering ASL interpreted tours at 1pm on Saturday July 14 and Sunday July 15th and Described tours at 2pm and 4:30pm on July 15th. Spots on the ASL tour can be reserved at this link and at this link for Described tours.
On the tours, guests will be sent to locations along the Galloping Goose to experience 14 (or more…) live shows by professional performers from around Canada. Guests are encouraged to walk or ride to shows on any transportation method; all tours are wheelchair accessible. If guests have transportation concerns or queries, contact ciel@skam.ca or 250-386-7526. SKAMpede is all about artistic expression, site-specific performance art, summer fun, local arts, inclusion, and sustainable community engagement.
Attached in this email are images from previous SKAMpede shows, the SKAMpede banner and poster, links to the eventbrite ASL and Described tour sign-up (above), our website, and Facebook SKAMpede event. These contents can be used to share via social media or on websites.
Feel free to email me at ciel@skam.ca, phone at 250-386-7526, or send a message via Facebook or Instagram for further information or questions.

BC Rockies Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ice Hockey Team

My name is David McGregor, I volunteer for the BC Rockies Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ice Hockey team.  We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a development camp for hockey players of all ages, gender and skill level.  This will be provided to all hearing levels as we welcome a fully inclusive environment for our players.  This is a safe place to learn to play or push your game to the next level.
Additionally, to get you an idea of our success we’ve had this year: we sent two teams to Winnipeg to compete at the Canada Deaf Games.  Both teams had a mix of deaf and hard of hearing players.  Our teams came second and third!  We look forward to building off this success and pursue our goal for gold.  At the same time, we enjoy the social environment with all of our deaf and hard of hearing players.
Here’s a short video highlighting two of our leaders who would be involved in the camp:
Please do not hesitate to contact me or Shawn Mayzes for more information.
See the attached flyer.
Thank you!
