A fantastic opportunity to tell your story and life experiences within Preston with the theme of:

“Preston: Past, Present and Future”.

The three workshops led by a Deaf person and everything will be in British Sign Language. You will have the opportunity to gain the skill  to tell your story in sign language, which will be kept forever on the website and to present solo or in groups at the Live Event on Friday 11th May to wider audience of Deaf and hearing people.

The skills you will gain are:
Confidence building
Storyboarding/mind mapping

Come and join us in the workshop or watch the Live Event, both for free and once in a life-time opportunity
