Hello everyone! I'm with the museum director, Dr. Kris Johnson (showing his name sign) and I recently are responsible to run the museum. The museum was inactive for while and we want to open up the museum at Raney Hall. We are thrilled to know that ISD is willing to host the Deaf Heritage workshop for the community. During the workshop, we will be discussing about the Deaf history and we will have hands-on learning experience activities for participants. We will have an open forum to discuss any ideas or suggestions for the museum and what the Deaf community envision the future for the museum. We hope to see you all at the workshop. The workshop will be at Raney Hall (the building on your right when you come in from the main entrance) on September 28th from 6pm to 8pm. Thank you!!!! ... See MoreSee Less

Hello everyone! I'm James Carr, one of the board members of Indiana Association of the Deaf (IAD). I'm here with IAD President, Trevor Baldwin and we are at the school site to provide some ASL lessons to elementary school students. We taught how to sign the rules. The students seemed to enjoy learning ASL. If any of schools around Indiana would like to teach ASL to the students, please feel free to contact IAD President to discuss about the ASL lessons and we could come to your school to provide ASL lessons. The school that we visited was Spring Mill Elementary School (pointing to the sign). Thank you! ... See MoreSee Less
