Recreation

DeafACT supports a range of recreational activities aimed at bringing Deaf and hard-of-hearing people together.

We host semi-regular fundraising barbeques at hardware stores around town. In addition to being great fundraisers they are a great chance for the community to come together.

We hold community events such as the upcoming Ladies Night and Halloween at the Belconnen Labor Club. Again these events are both social and fundraising activities.

We actively promote any signed or captioned performances or tours held by Canberra’s cultural institutions and are actively lobbying for cinema open caption performances.

We have a Deaf Seniors sub-committee that seeks to arrange gatherings and outings for deaf seniors and we have lent our support to a new Deaf Dance initiative with the Belconnen Arts Centre.
