Auslan Parliament Bulletin launched

Auslannews webA parliament news bulletin in Auslan has been launched to help make information about the Victorian Parliament more accessible.

The Auslan Parliament Bulletin is part of a project to develop parliamentary resources in Auslan for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

The bulletin is a joint initiative of the Victorian Parliament and a group of young Victorians, a number of whom participated as the first deaf team (Deafhood) at the YMCA Youth Parliament of Victoria in 2017.

In August this year, Parliament’s Auslan project team coordinated two community workshops that examined how parliamentary terms can be expressed in Auslan.

A project webpage has been established at www.parliament.vic.gov.au/auslan to provide updates on the parliamentary resources that are being produced in Auslan.

The news bulletin will be published monthly on Facebook and YouTube and on Parliament's Auslan webpage.
