This is for Deaf or Hard of Hearing Youth fromVancouverbetween 17 to 30 years old. Youth use ASL or not: welcome we will provide ASL-Voice interpreters and maybe NCS. Foods will be provided and are free. We will have good presenters!!!

Remember, the workshop is “Work Alliance for Youth”. The purpose/goal of this workshop is to help YOUTH enter the labor market by offering Workshops and “coffee chats” in three different areas of employment: within the Deaf community, outside of the Deaf community and through Self-employment. Those presenters are to share their personal experience and expertise to youth (Deaf and Hard of Hearing, oral deaf, etc) about employment and issues surrounding employment (ex: education, career, leadership, etc).

Feb 28th UVic – Theatre Performance in ASL

Hello All,

On Saturday, February 28th at 2pm there will be a matinee showing of the performance ‘La Ronde’ at the University of Victoria’s Phoenix Theatre. This performance will be interpreted by a dynamic team of interpreters, Mary Warner (hearing interpreter) with Nigel Howard (Deaf Interpreter) on stage interpreting to the audience.

We hope you’ll attend this performance interpreted into ASL.

Please see the attached poster and ticket form INTERPRETED-PLAY-LA-RONDE @ UVIC for more information. Please fill out the section asking how many seats need direct sightline to the interpreter – this will allow the Phoenix theatre to be able to calculate how many audience members are there specifically because this play is accessible in ASL.

Book your seats soon as it is filling up quickly.

See you on February 28th at 2pm
