Workshop Synopsis: I have interpreted several Townhall Meetings, and each occasion I feel this type of workshop environment would allow us to ask and listen to the inquiry around us. What question has not been asked for you? Ask others. Ask yourself again when quiet. For some of us, this is a time of sheer turmoil. For others, loneliness and complete boredom, for some the best opportunity ever since starting to attend workshops. The DEAF community has stepped up and they are the perfect presenter for this moment. How are we retaining their lessons? Have we personally approached a specific Deaf Professional, and said, “Let’s barter services”? Sharon Neumann-Solow recently held a workshop, simply stating “What are our concerns”? She requested interpreters send in their questions and concerns and she discussed the issues during the scheduled webinar. It was perfect! This workshop is similar in discussion concerns, only You aregoing to ask and You are going to answer – ‘YOU’ being the community.
