What does 'HEARING HEALTH' mean to you? Workshop in Manchester on 23rd September 2019 for BSL Users


Recommended Posts

What does 'HEARING HEALTH' mean to you?

Researchers in Manchester are starting an exciting new project to understand how different people view their hearing and their 'hearing health'. 

We would like to inviteDeaf BSL users who live or work in Greater Manchester to come to a workshop to discuss their own views of hearing and hearing health. The workshop will be run by Celia Hulme (a Deaf researcher) and a visual artist. No experience of research necessary, it is your experience as a BSl user that is important! The meeting will be BSL user friendly. 

Watch this BSL video about the project: https://bit.ly/2m2XuxB

When: Monday 23rd September 2019

Time: 6pm - 8.30pm

Where: Friends Meeting House, Central Manchester

If you wish to book your place or want more information, contact Paolo Arru via email or text. [email protected] or 07816 447520

    • My name is LJ, and I decided to learn BSL to open up career opportunities and whilst i know a few basic signs, learning it fully has always been a goal of mine
    • Hi everyone, my name is sue and I started to learn sign language in February.  I was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year, and have lost one side of my hearing due to an operation and the hearing in my other ear isn’t great.  I was always interested in signing and watching Rose on strictly last year sealed my interest.  I really hope I can go on to use it more. 🙂
    • What is the sign for therapy or is it just fingerspelled?
    • Hi, I started the BSL course 2 years ago during lockdown but found it hard doing it by myself. my daughter has chosen to do it as part of her DofE skills so we are now learning it together. For me it will be a valuable tool in my job as a sen teaching assistant and hopefully my daughter will find it useful in the future as well.
    • To better communicate with the people around me and to improve accessibility. 
    • I'm learning BSL, finally. I like many others believe it should be taught in schools and offered as classes throughout education. However, I'm learning to allow myself to communicate with others 
    • I can speak three languages and I'd like to communicate with people (deaf or not) using BSL, too. I believe being able to speak BSL would help integrate us more to our society and communicate with deaf members of our society.
    • I wanted to learn BSL for years. I am hard of hearing but never learned to sign and now learning level 2. I'd love to help bring the deaf and hearing communities together more.
