ASLIA is a proud recipient of an ANZ & Sydney Mardi Gras Community Grant.
Thank you to ANZ for their commitment to investment in the community!
National LGBTQI+ community grants program has awarded ASLIA $10,000.
Funds will be used at our upcoming ANC2020 workshops and for developing our profession further through the following:
ASLIA wants to provide education and training about the LGBTIQA+ Community to interpreters.
The nature of the project is twofold:
- Workshop: provide training for Auslan/ English interpreters and Deaf interpreters on the topic of the Deaf LGBTIQA+ community, which will be presented by the Deaf Queer Community themselves;
- Filmed Resource: this workshop will be recorded, edited and adapted with additional information, to then become a resource, available for Auslan/ English interpreters and Deaf interpreters and the Deaf LGBTIQA+ Community to access
This will of course be completed in collaboration with the Deaf LGBTIQA+ Community.
