About

A club where Curtin Students and students of Auslan (Australian Sign Language) can come together to socialise, practice Auslan, and share our journeys in learning Auslan and engaging with Deaf culture

The Curtin Auslan Society is a club where Curtin Students and students of Auslan (Australian Sign Language) can come together to socialise, practice Auslan, and share our journeys in learning Auslan and engaging with Deaf culture. Members of the club will be a part of a social network of Auslan students, and be invited to events where they can develop their Auslan or socialise with other members of the society. A goal of the club is to connect members with Deaf and accredited Auslan instructors and organise for Deaf and accredited Auslan instructors to do workshops for the members of the club. As the club is based in Perth, we will predominantly practice and engage with the Perth dialect of Auslan; however are advocates for the language in all its variants.

Objectives:

  1. To promote communication between the Deaf Community and Hearing Community through encouraging fluency in Auslan in the Hearing Community.
  2. To provide events and spaces where those learning Auslan can practice together.
  3. To encourage Deaf Culture and Awareness Training, particularly for Health Sciences Students and Education students through creating educational events and workshops where Native Auslan speakers can address students.

The Curtin Student Guild recognises the Whadjuk Noongar people as the traditional owners of this land, and pays respect to elders past, present, and emerging.
