Panel Discussion

Unheard Of

5:30pm | 06/08 | Hobart

Deafness is so often presented as a deficit — a lack of hearing. But what gets much less attention is what is gained in the absence of hearing. Learn from a panel of Deaf people, lived experts in non-verbal communication, about the incredible richness of Deaf culture, sign language, and all that goes unnoticed when the sound is on.

Speaker details will be announced soon.

 

Presented by Beaker Street Festival in partnership with

Doors open at 5:15pm, talk begins at 5:30pm.

A Seat at the Table


Beaker Street Festival’s pay-it-forward initiative, A Seat at the Table, helps make our science and art offerings accessible to those who can’t afford to purchase a ticket. Ticket buyers have the option to donate towards the cost of a stranger’s ticket. You won’t know who you’ve helped, but your donation will go directly to allowing someone else to access this great event.

Need a seat at the table? Email: [email protected] with your name, email address, post code, your age (if you don’t mind – it helps us gather data), which event you’re interested in, and whether you would like one or two tickets. Your information will never be shared or made public. If we can offer you a seat, we’ll notify you by email within a week of the event.
