Quadrilingual exhibition: Quebec Sign Language (LSQ), American Sign Language (ASL), French and English
Come into contact with Deaf culture and identity! The expression “peuple de l’œil”, or “people of the eye”, underlines the importance of sight for speakers of sign languages in their relationship to the world.
Discover the places, people and events linked to the history of Deaf persons in Canada. The exhibition also offers avenues for reflection about the contemporary Deaf community and presents works of art. Comme visit us at l'Écomusée du fier monde, 2050, Amherst street, Montréal (Qc) H2L 3L8 | 514 528-8444. Permalink
