The annual Deaf Diaspora 2017 was held in the coastal city of Brighton from 21st September to 1st October with the theme ‘Access to Arts’. The event celebrated theatre; dance and visual art made by deaf people and explored the influence of this on the mainstream.

“It was a honour to be invited to the festival and I can definitely see that Brighton is the home of the Arts. It was great to see a variety of deaf arts and I’ve really enjoyed the events including the talk about access in museums given by Ally Rogers and John Wilson.” – Nikki Stratton, Deaffest Co-Founder.

A big thank you to Nadia Nadarajah from Deaf Diaspora for inviting Nikki to give a talk.
