British Sign Language
Many people have limited knowledge of British Sign Language, the main means of communication for the deaf and hard of hearing community in the UK. I have designed an imagined event that would allow the general public to gain an understanding of the basics of BSL. The event is a scavenger hunt, in which participants wear noise cancelling headphones and walk around the city looking for the posters of different BSL signs. By wearing the headphones, members of the public are able to put themselves into the shoes of someone within the deaf community, whilst learning signs along the way.
