Online Sign Language Workshop
Around the world, sign languages have developed naturally with their own inflections and cultures, just like spoken languages. In our two online Sign Language Workshops: Deaf Culture 101 and A Deaf Storyteller – guided by SLCO Community Resource – Deaf teachers share insight into everyday sign language and how to communicate with Deaf individuals.
RAW x Unsung Heroes - One Love in Voices
RAW x Unsung Heroes - One Love in Voices is a collaboration between HKYAF’s a cappella team RAW and the Unsung Heroes choir, whose members are all part of Hong Kong’s foreign domestic workers community. Working with experienced music director Ivy Hung, they perform their own rendition of a mash-up of Seasons of Love and the Tagalog classic Isang Mundo, Isang Awit (One World, One Song). Since last November, the singers practised together every Sunday to prepare for the audio and video recording. The resulting work shows the power of music to bring people together regardless of cultural background, language and occupation. Watch now and let music connect us!
Signs of Light
In the short dance and music video Sign of Light, youngsters share their passions and dreams! Working with a deaf teacher from SLCO Community Resources, a group of talented HKYAF dancers gained insight into Cantonese sign language and the life experience and culture of the deaf community in Hong Kong. They then worked with choreographer Malvina Tam to interpret the song She Remembers, He Forgets (哪一天我們會飛), incorporating Cantonese sign language into their moves. The song is sung by HKYAF singers trained by music coach Ivy Hung. The video was created to encourage people to pursue their dreams, regardless of their age, language and ability – and to show that passion is a universal language that transcends words!
Tactile Icon Creation
In these videos, Dr Rico Chan, the founder of Beyond Vision International, introduces a system of tactile visual vocabulary that helps visually impaired people understand complex graphic elements in our environment – and demonstrates how to create tactile icons!
