The key mandates of the Canadian Cultural Society of the Deaf (CCSD) are as follows:
· artistic practice is supported through a sustained and interconnected arts ecosystem
· artists and arts professionals benefit from activities that advance learning and strengthen networks
· arts organizations and specialists assist artists in developing and producing work, as well as reaching a public
· planning, implementation and evaluation to expand the national certification process for Sign Language instructors/teachers, coaches and consultants.
We are now at a tipping point in building capacity through these arts partnerships and increased exponential exposure – integral vital and authentic part of the Canadian arts eco-system. If others beyond our community can see the value of Deaf community, Deaf culture and sign language, that is truly inclusive in society.
Your contribution will help us continue to function as a productive Deaf arts national organization and will support the artists whose works and sign language are critical in obtaining nuance, direction, and comfort during our new daily routines.
