Deaf NYC: Apart & Connected
How has life changed during this pandemic for New York City’s deaf community? When everyone wears face masks, how does that affect interactions? When is information fully accessible and how can communication be better? Are there signs that are new, or signs that have taken on new meaning? Are there ways that deaf cultural life is uniquely helpful during this time?
On May 12, 2020, deaf residents of NYC shared perspectives, challenges and hopes during a virtual panel discussion on the pandemic. Follow the link below to see the discussion with Roxanna Aguila, Carlos Aponte-Salcedo, Jr., Patrice Creamer, Marina Fanshteyn, and Alexandria Pucciarelli-Miller.
Brianna DiGiovanni, intern in the Drs. John S. & Betty J. Schuchman Deaf Documentary Center at Gallaudet University hosted the panel.
Many thanks to the remarkable panel and moderator as well as the dedicated interpreting, captioning and technology teams!
