DEAF.city

Participants with hearing loss use Sign Language to tell some favorite jokes, sharing their particular sense of humor and their own cultural and linguistic identity.

If humour is the tendency of experiences to provoke laughter and provide amusement, everyone knows that it evokes the good, the bad, the sad, the hilarious, the tragic, the mysterious, the dark... probably every feeling may be cause for a good joke!

By appealing the unique wit that deaf citizens practice about their own condition and about their intricate relationship with those who can hear, DEAF.city aspires to create an online environment to foster visual gestural eloquence, unveiling the clamour of silence.

Dissemination is planned through exhibitions, led walls, urban projections, and on the Internet.

?

The aim of the DEAF.city project is to bring together the diversity of sign languages and the particular idiosyncrasy of deaf participants from different cities, willing to offer not only a meeting point for distant communities, but a bridge to the hearing crowd.

The initial experience took place in Valencia in December 2020, where 7 participants featured 37 of their best jokes, mainly dealing with interactions between deaf and hearing people: Enjoy!

Deaf Citizens and Researchers, Communities and Associations, Art and Cultural Organisations are very welcome to contribute. Please get in touch to host a DEAF.city project in your area.
