Ten months of planning came to glorious fruition on Saturday October 17th with the running of the SA Deaf Expo, only the second event of its type in SA. With the aim of bringing the interpreting and Deaf communities together and proudly showcasing our local Deaf businesses, artists, schools, church and social groups, the day was a resounding success. Several hundred people came through the gates, and most stayed for the day which included a program of presentations – from the sponsors, Sandra Hoopman’s research on the history of Deaf women in SA, Cinderella by Caroline Conlon, the Klemzig Primary School signing choir, and an ASLIA SA role play about ethical behaviours that the Deaf community should expect from their interpreters. We organised a mentoring program for young Deaf MCs and the three primary and high school students did a great job of compering the speakers program. The information stalls, artists exhibitions, Deaf business market, petting zoo, children’s crafts, food and drink stalls, face painting, lucky door prize and Instagram competition provided something for everyone. Interpreters volunteered their time throughout the day, providing an opportunity for Diploma of Interpreting students and recent graduates to gain valuable experience in a supportive environment. Funds raised from the day will go towards Deaf Youth and Deaf Sports. This event could not have happened without the support of our sponsors: Major – NICSS; Gold – Auslan Services, aiMedia, Deaf Can Do; Silver – Deaf Action, Department for Education and Child Development; a grant from Deafness Foundation; our hard working committee of Katrina Lancaster-Maggs, Debbie Kennewell, Gerry Shearim, Adrienne White, Ryan Gook, Chelsea Turner and Amy Blaylock; Sarah Bird and Sarah Dempsey for the ASLIA SA presentation; MC mentor, story teller and guest role-player Caroline Conlon; Deaf Community Sports SA, Deaf Australia (SA), ASLIA SA; and all of the volunteers who helped throughout the day. We hope to do it all again in 2017!
