22 SEPTEMBER 2017 / DEAFestival on September 22nd-24th

The Hellenic Federation of the Deaf, in collaboration with the Prefecture of Attica, are organizing the Deaf Festival that will take place at the Central Square of Nea Smirni. This two-day festival, attempts to give the opportunity to the citizens of Athens to get familiar with the deaf community’s culture.

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation supports the Federation’s sign language interpretation program. Recognizing the need to communicate as a basic human right, the SNF supports the enhancement of the sign language interpretation program, for the next two years. This grant will cover more needs as it will almost triple the annual free hours of sign language interpretation.

The Hellenic Federation of Deaf was established in 1968 with the mission to represent the community of deaf people, both in Greece and abroad, and to promote equal rights.
