HLAA-SLC and DSDHH is teaming up for another Better Hearing and Speech month event this year. This year our workshop will be on Hearing Loss & Identity. Hearing loss can affect our personalities and we lose the person we think are. We are embarrassed by it and we hide it making it feel shameful. Let’s discuss that, go over the past and find out why we might think that way. During the second presentation we will share some tool for accepting hearing loss and moving on our with our lives.
On either side of those presentations we’ll be having fun with a hearing loss quiz and prizes, food and more. Join us by registering at the link below. The event brings together good people, fun times and maybe you’ll learn a few things too.

What is Vibe About?
Vibe is event that is gear around making events that are catered to hearing, hard of hearing and deaf culture under one roof. We focus heavily on heightening all senses, not just one.
Realizing The Issue
There is a Stigma: Deaf and Hearing People can’t go to the same music events
Though it might not be expressed, everyone we have talked to were baffled by the idea of concerts catered to deaf culture. No one throws events for both hearing and deaf culture because we think we express music differently. Though the only difference between the two is one doesn’t have one sense of the 5, nothing else changes.
Not such a crazy idea…
At the end of the day, it is all about eliminating this confusion and bringing in a new idea that most haven’t thought to consider. It isn’t about highlighting one culture over the other. It is about enjoying each other’s company where everyone is enjoying the same music, same atmosphere and same event.
