Everyone at the iSLanDS Institute would like to thank those who participated in our workshop on Saturday 1st March: “Building the Capacity of Deaf Communities through Applied Sign Linguistics”.

All presenters and participants in attendance helped to make sure the workshop ran as a success, including colleagues from India, Canada, Jordan, Turkey, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands and the UK. Thank you to all who shared this exciting and fascinating day with us. Through the talk of key issues during the presentations, panel discussion and smaller discussion groups, we were able to gather various views and ideas to inform our upcoming projects on capacity building and deaf literacy, which will also prove to be helpful within several areas of our work.

The enthusiasm of all workshop participants was vastly appreciated and has helped to propel our projects forward. We would also like to very heartily thank all of our interpreters, who worked extremely hard throughout the day to provide access to all participants in International Sign, British Sign Language and spoken English.
