Event Details

A Deaf Revolution: Design for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
D.C. prides itself on being a city of inclusion and equality, and businesses here are constantly adapting to meet employees’ and customers’ needs. We’ll talk with some that are adapting “deaf space” design practices, including Streetcar 82 Brewing Co., the District’s first deaf-owned brewery. You’ll learn simple ways spaces can be more accommodating, the difficulties of creating a deaf-run business, and some of the city’s plans to aid in the growing “deaf space” revolution.
