Listening With Your Eyes


Located in Olathe, Kansas, visiting the Museum of Deaf History, Arts and Culture is truly a unique experience. This is the only Deaf Museum in the US not affiliated with an educational institution. During this hands-on workshop you will have the opportunity to learn a bit about the rich history and culture of a community within our community. You will also visit the Chuck Baird Art Gallery which focuses on De’VIA (Deaf View Image Art) viewing artwork by Deaf artists from across the country. De’VIA is an art genre that expresses elements of Deaf culture and experiences. Interpreters will be provided for a portion of this workshop, though you may surprise yourself with how much you can hear through your eyes!

 Bus transportation is provided to and from the hotel.
