More Than Auslan
"More than Auslan" explores the deep impact on the community through Auslan. It is indeed a language but it's means so much more than that. Language breaks down many barriers benefiting community communication access, culture and identity.
“More Than Auslan” highlights the deep impact Auslan has on the Deaf community while exploring the rich complexities such as culture, community and history that contribute to Auslan as a language. In doing so, this theme promotes the message that Auslan is a language deeply rooted in the Deaf community and lives of Deaf and hard of hearing individuals.
