The first evening (Wed 5/9 at 6:00 pm),  Wink dramatically recounts his Deaf parents’ tragic experience involving a car accident and their struggles to communicate with a hearing world, interspersed with comedic commentary. Wink is a CODA, a performer, an ASL and Deaf Culture advocate, and a Linguistics graduate student at Gallaudet.

The second evening (Thurs 5/10 at 6:00 pm), Wink moderates a panel of four members of the Deaf Community – Moises Jaramillo, Claudia Jimenez, Rezenet Moges-Riedel, and Carol Padden – as they share their experiences and take questions.

Admission is free and open to the whole campus and San Diego community. Seating will be given on a first come, first served basis. The entire event will be delivered in ASL with English interpretation.

"Gifts from Deaf Culture" is supported by the Department of Anthropology, the Department of Communication, the Division of Social Sciences, the Graduate Student Association, and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.

Please feel free to share this announcement with all those who may be interested.
