What’s Happening at Deaf Festival.
The 2016 Deaf Festival is on this Saturday 22nd October 2016 from 10am - 4pm. PODC will be there and we are excited to share with you the program of activities.
The highlight of this year’s festival will be the Great Auslan Spelling Bee. How is your fingerspelling? Start practicing because we will have three competitions for deaf and hard of hearing people; juniors 5 – 8 years old, juniors 9 – 12 years old and the open category. If you are interested in joining the competition, you can register now here
Do you remember playing traffic light at family gatherings? We’re bring this classic family game to the Deaf Festival. Don’t miss the opportunity to play with hundreds of people. It will be great fun!
For the kids there will be face-painting, plaster painting, drumming workshops by the students of Robert Townson High School, a ginormous jumping castle and much more. We will also have Deaf Australia NSW community awards and David Brady, Chair of the Deafness Forum will discuss the Break the Sound Barrier campaign.
There will be 24 stallholders and a range of food providers. Remember to bring a hat and sunscreen. We look forward to seeing you there!
