On Saturday October 8 2016, from 9am-4pm NIS will be filming stories of Deaf people at the San Diego Deaf Festival. The Deaf Festival is taking place at the Jacobs Center, 404 Euclid Ave, San Diego, CA 92114.
Reserve a spot for yourself or a Deaf friend or family member whose story you wish to save! Those who participate will be given a DVD copy or link to their interview, a #deafstory mug, and a hoodie with the hashtag #deafstory on it.
Tell us your hoodie size and which time slot you would like by visiting http://networkinterpretingservice.com/nis2016/deafstory-sign-up/
How it works:
You do NOT need to come with a story in mind because a friend, family member, or one of us, will ask you questions. If you would like us or your family member to ask you specific questions, then we can do that.
Here are a list of great questions found on storycorps.org that anyone can borrow.
If you have any questions please email us with the hashtag #deafstory in the subject line and we will be happy to answer. You may also leave your question/comment below on this blog.
See you at the San Diego Deaf Festival on Oct 8th!
Richard talks about meeting Patrick Graybill and the impact he had on his life back in college.
