Okay...Where my Deaf/HH Burners at?

Postby kaylabird87 » Wed Apr 05, 2017 8:18 pm

Hi.

(Note: I've been poking around for ages, but haven't found anything conclusive regarding DHH camps/villages. If there is one preexsisting, please point me in the right direction—specifically looking for Da Dirty Hands if anyone has a contact).

15% of the population is Deaf and/or Hard of Hearing (identifiables vary widely), which means out of ~70k humans heading out to BRC every year, there are stastically a number of individuals there who live in a silent/semi-silent world.

I am looking to a) find my other DHHs on the Playa, or b) start to snowball (dustball) a way for us all to come together in either a camp/village in BRC.

I put my name in the hat as a potential volunteer for ASL services in my profile, so I know there is an interpretive need in BRC, at the very least.

But how many more burners have left the event with loss of hearing after being subjected to trap music at one of the sound-camps?

Not exactly answering your question but since this is 'sort of' on topic I just had to share since this is one of my favorite burning man video's and involves deaf/hh enjoy: https://youtu.be/cGrYUvBIB60
