Subscribe to RSS RSSWednesday, 9th June, 2010

This year will see the second Deaf Multi-cultural World Party on Saturday 3 July between 6pm and 1am. During the evening, people are encouraged to wear traditional cultural dress to celebrate minority cultures within the Deaf community. Come and enjoy a programme of dancing, performances and signed song, demonstrating a range of cultural traditions, as well as a diverse buffet with food from around the globe, at the Deaf Cultural Centre, Ladywood Road, Birmingham.

The Birmingham Deaf Diversity Group is supported by the Deaf Cultural Centre.
The group was formed recently, uniting the Deaf Asian Group and the LGBT. Following discussions between these two groups, it was decided that a merge could enable their joint objectives to be met more efficiently, using the available volunteers.

The group?s aim is to provide for the needs of the diverse sub-cultures within the Deaf community, and to foster mutual understanding between people from different backgrounds. They raise money to fund projects in developing countries, where Deaf youngsters are living in deprived conditions.

Among the general population, they aim to raise awareness of the range of cultures within the Deaf community, particularly marginalised groups. They also aim to address isolation by holding a range of social events at the Deaf Cultural Centre.

Adults £10, Concessions £8, Door £15
