At our Angel Row History Forum on Tuesday 14th February, 2017 in the Local Studies Library, 1st Floor, Central Library Nottingham Nicola Ramsdale, Project Support Officer with Nottinghamshire Deaf Society gave a talk on the development of the Hearing Deaf Voices project.
The Hearing Deaf Voices Project was funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund and was designed to celebrate the history of the Deaf Community in Nottinghamshire, capturing memories, experiences, histories and heritage. It included an exhibition in the Central Library between 1st and 29th March 2017, interviews with community members; archiving photographs, videos, documents, and items of interest. The project ran from April 2016 to March 2017.
Nottinghamshire Deaf Society (NDS) is a registered charity that works with deaf, hard of hearing and deafened people of all ages across Nottinghamshire and the East Midlands, focusing on ability rather than disability. The Society is based in a Grade II listed building on Forest Road West and celebrated its 125th Anniversary in 2015.
