Pictures from past Deaf Days
The Creation Museum’s annual Deaf Day began in 2010. This yearly event features ASL interpreters, deaf volunteers, and text-based captioning. Many of the Creation Museum’s videos are regularly open-captioned for all of our guests to enjoy. On Deaf Day several presentations will provide text-based captioning. Other areas feature ASL interpreters providing live interpretation of presentations such as The Last Adam.
Live presentations may also be interpreted and volunteers will be available to assist with ticket sales, food ordering, and providing directions. Deaf volunteers are also available to assist deaf guests with questions about the museum. See our events calendar to see what programs will be offered on Deaf Day and what forms of interpretation will be provided.
We were very pleased in 2012 to be joined by Deaf Missions, who put together a wonderful Deaf drama team to perform some skits and music in ASL. They portrayed Moses, Noah, Eve, and other historical figures in an exciting program, which was voice interpreted for hearing guests. Deaf Missions plans to participate again, and we look forward to seeing what they put together this time.
We hope many guests will come and enjoy the Deaf Day each year. Hearing guests are also invited, of course, and we expect you will enjoy watching the expressive communication of American Sign Language during the shows and throughout the museum. It can be a real learning experience to be surrounded by people speaking the beautiful language of ASL!
