The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2022-This is How We Sign! Online Sign Language Workshops

03/04/2022; 09/04/2022

√What if your hands did the talking? What “accent” would they have? Around the world, sign languages, like spoken languages, have developed naturally with their own inflections and cultures. But how much do you know about sign language in Hong Kong or the Hong Kong deaf community? Join our Online Sign Language Workshop: This is how we sign! and we’ll help you connect and communicate with deaf individuals.

Earlier this year, a group of HKYAF dancers and singers worked with a deaf teacher from SLCO Community Resource to learn the basic elements of Hong Kong sign language and gain a deeper understanding of the life and communication culture of the local deaf community. Together with a professional choreographer and music director, they created the artistic video Signs of Light to celebrate the richness of our local sign language.

As an extension of this programme, we are now presenting two workshops offering an opportunity for everyone to learn more about deaf culture directly from members of the community. In both sessions, Malvin Tam, the choreographer of Signs of Light, also discusses the creative ideas behind the video. Join us to embrace deaf culture and co-create a special work.

Date: 3 April, 2022 (Sun)
