Dialogue in Silence Workshop
Details of the Session:
Date: Wednesday 12 November 2014
Time: 2.00pm – 3.30pm
Dialogue in Silence introduces a new perspective on communication – relying no more on sounds and speech. With the absence of sounds and speech, participants are challenged to let go of their familiar thinking and behaviour patterns. Initially they may find this difficult, frustrating and even overwhelming. However, under the guidance of Deaf trainers and through a series of carefully designed activities, we show participants that silence can be exciting, fun and insightful. A key element in silence is to unleash the essence of communication which is more than speech and words. Most moments of truth are communicated through an expression, a body gesture and an emotion. In the silence, participants find creative ways to communicate, explore new ways to understand the whole message, and discover a range of expressions and emotions that they were not aware of before. Participants will come away with a deeper understanding and the ability to experience the world from a different perspective.
