Preserving and Celebrating Edinburgh’s Deaf Heritage

A BSL interpreter will be provided. This event will be accessible for everyone.

Deaf Action was the first official deaf organisation in the world and is now the last remaining deaf centre in Scotland. As part of our inaugural Deaf Festival, launching in August 2022, our unique offices will screen a series of new film clips capturing our relationship with the deaf community in Scotland: from older members’ childhood memories, to young peoples’ vision for the future.

We will be holding screenings in historically significant rooms around our unique office, as well as online. All stories will be presented in British Sign Language, with captions and voiceover.

This event has been made possible thanks to funding from Museums and Galleries Scotland, hosted jointly with Visit Scotland.
