Did you know that Islam is the world’s second largest religion? Did you know there are two cohorts, the S… or the S…?

There is a rich diversity within Islam and the Muslim community that many people are simply unaware of… that includes us as interpreters.

Come along a journey of discovery whilst improving your skills in a significantly growing area of need for the Muslim Deaf Community.

This event will have:

  • Br Ahmad Awad providing presentations from the Muslim community,
  • Discussions from an interpreter’s perspective by an experienced interpreter in this niche area, Rebecca Cramp who is also undertaking further tertiary studies in this area , and
  • There will be a mixture of deaf people (both Sunni and Shia Muslims) represented on a Deaf panel.

N.B. this is not able to be live streamed
