On April 17-19 the Deaf Media Summit will be taking place at Gallaudet, an invite-only event that will gather the innovators and changemakers in our community that are involved in Deaf Media. They will discuss the media’s role in and relationship with the Deaf community. They will also answer questions such as how media-centric solutions can drive innovation and spur change, increase and strengthen entrepreneurship, grow talent and create employment opportunities. The discussions online and at multiple summits worldwide will generate data and input for a “Deaf Media Industry Report,” scheduled for release at the end of 2018.


Emerging Deaf talent in the DMV area and Gallaudet community, especially students, have an amazing opportunity to get involved. You can meet award winning Deaf experts, get mentorship, and possibly meet a future employer! We are currently looking for individuals who would like to participate on:

– Film crew
– Live stream/social media crew
– Event crew
– Research crew

Please fill out our call for talent form if you are interested in being involved, and we will be in touch shortly!
