Plans For Deafhood Institute in 2023 (as a part of MDHAC Culture Program)
We’ll focus on:
Continuing to provide a range of options for how our educational programs are delivered through virtual and in-person experiences (Schedule for 2023)
Incorporating concepts from Deaf Gain and "Intersectionality in Deaf Communities" into Deafhood programs
Releasing at least 3 new events (Deafhood Refreshers, "Is Deaf a Disability" Panel, and Introduction to Economic Justice)
Translating more of Dr. Paddy Ladd’s book, "Understanding Deaf Culture; In Search of Deafhood" from written English into American Sign Language. (Paddy Ladd Book Translations)
Planning for the re-activation of our Request for Proposal process for Deafhood grants hopefully with a target date in 2024. (Deafhood Grants page)
Setting the groundwork for our next Deafhood Banquet
