26th November 2022
Engineers House, Clifton, Bristol.
Deaf people have always worked as interpreters for other members of the deaf
community, but in recent years the profession of deaf interpreting has started to be
To date, there has been little training focused on how deaf and hearing interpreters
work together effectively, and some hearing interpreters may have had few
opportunities to work with a deaf interpreter colleague.
As our profession evolves, it is important for deaf and hearing interpreter colleagues to
spend time together to discuss effective working practices in different settings.
So, this day is an opportunity to talk. We’ll structure our discussions with questions and
activities. It’s a space for the conversations between deaf and hearing interpreters to
begin and develop.
The workshop will be held at Engineers House in Clifton, and includes lunch and
refreshments. We’ll use BSL as our shared language during the day.
