As you are aware already, we have been working arduously in preparation for our Deaf Youth Film and Performance Academy.  

It is with great sadness that we announce the Deaf Youth Film and Performance Academy will not now be going ahead. Several factors have contributed to this outcome, but the main difficulty has been in obtaining our funding target.  

We would like to thank you for your interest as well as your support. It is incredible to see the support given to the project which has inspired us to strive to continue trying to develop and offer filming and performance opportunities to young deaf people.

Meanwhile we would very much welcome your continued support for Deaffest; we welcome donations, which will go towards young deaf people’s workshops at Deaffest 2019. Please get in touch with us at for more information about making a donation.
