This Saturday August 31st, the Hogar del Niño will start Sign Language classes at the Altos de Chavón museum with one of the Dominican Republic’s leading sign language experts – Sonia Encarnación.
These classes are part of the Hogar del Niño School for the Deaf: The Muse Seek Project, which aims to promote social awareness through the creation of artistic activities in partnership with the Music and Deaf society (UK) for the Deaf community of the Dominican Republic.
The Muse Seek Project’s idea is to merge both worlds, the hearing community and the Deaf community. This movement has many levels: The First Music Program for the Deaf in the Dominican Republic, Sign Language Classes, The 3 Months Performance (in which Maria Batlle founder of the project is living as a person who cannot talk nor hear – www.themuseseekproject.blogspot.com) and access guides for businesses and companies.
