Are you curious to come into the wonderful world of sign language where you will use your hands, body and facial expressions to communicate? You will be introduced to the fundamentals of International Sign as used by the international Deaf community, including basic vocabulary and basic information on Deaf culture specifically, basic LGBTIAQ+ vocabulary and basic information on Queer as Deaf Culture.
Voices at the Vida
As a part of the grand opening of the Villa Vida, Villa Vida would like to take this opportunity to be an active contributor to the EuroPride festivities. They are offering educational programme regarding identity exploration, queer advocacy, and inclusivity in general and thus have curated talks/discussion groups regarding topics such as trans visibility, sexual health, safer sex practices, polyamory, as well as the queer history of Vienna and even queer deaf visibility.
The talks will be in German and/or English depending on the needs of the participants.
