The mission of Deaf Crows Collective is to provide opportunities for performance by d/Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing, late deafened actors of all ages to celebrate Deaf culture, encourage self expression, and foster relationships between hearing and Deaf communities.
What is Deaf Crows Collective?
Deaf Crows Collective evolved from the production Deaf Crows presented at The Artesian in Regina, June 2016. Following the tremendous success, sold-out extended run, and invitations to present Deaf Crows across Canada, Joanne Weber and other members of the Regina Deaf community recognized the need for a creative Deaf voice in Saskatchewan, and Deaf Crows Collective was born.
Deaf Crows Collective is a Deaf-led arts collective that seeks to explore the Deaf experience and ways to bridge all communication preferences, language choices, intersectionalities (such as race, class and gender) and visual communication styles. We are seeking ways to blend genres such as ASL poetry, puppetry, mime, the written and spoken word. We collaborate with Deaf and hearing artists, Deaf cultural consultants, ASL specialists and those who are culturally diverse to bring unforgettable experiences of navigating all worlds to audiences.
Deaf Crows Collective performance and art projects are made possible thanks to the generous donations of public and private donors. For information about sponsorship of a future Deaf Crows performance please email firstname.lastname@example.org
