‘My Deaf Story Project –
Discovering our deaf culture, identity and heritage’
Report from Project Manager Steve Gibson
I took over the project manager role from Sam Allen on 4th January 2016. On the same day, I met up with Jill Jones and Sam. At the meeting, Sam transferred all the paperwork and workload to me. After Sam left, Jill and I went through what had been done and what was needed to do.
I am grateful to both Jill and Sam for their information and support, mainly the former. I have to say that it has been a steep learning curve for me and it will take a while before I settle in and effectively manage the project.
To date, we have had the following workshops/visits:
16th January – Visit to Thackeray Museum, Leeds and a meeting with West Yorkshire Metro over the use of Travel pass for deaf people.
