The NRS will be partnering with next month’s Australian Deaf Games.
The Games run from 9 to 16 January with more than a thousand Deaf and hearing-impaired people from all over Australia and neighbouring Pacific nations converging on Adelaide for the four-yearly sporting festival.
As well as attending the Games Hub expo as part of the cultural and social program, the NRS will be using the opportunity to talk to members of the Deaf community about the NRS app.
This will be the second stage of our survey of app users – the initial online survey is now closed. We’ll be at the main venue at Adelaide High School and will be carrying out short interviews in Auslan with app users about how the app works for them and how it can be improved.
So please come and talk to us!
Up to 20 different sporting competitions will be held at the Games including athletics, swimming, beach volleyball, basketball and netball. There’ll also be a variety of cultural events such as comedy shows, a mini children’s games and a quiz night.
The Deaf Games are hosted by Deaf Sports Australia, Deaf Community & Sports SA, the 2016 Adelaide Games Organising Committee and the City of Adelaide.
