The Day of Learning will take place on September 6th in partnership with Gallaudet University. A description of the event is below:
One day. Dozens of lessons, workshops, and classes taught by your neighbors -- Washington D.C. residents. The Day of Learning is an opportunity for the city’s community to learn from and teach each other.
From an introduction to hand-dancing, to getting the low-down on mixing the city’s signature cocktail (the Gin Rickey), to exploring D.C.'s neighborhoods, the Day of Learning celebrates D.C.’s vibrant culture, history, and people. The Day of Learning is a lively and community-driven event that unites the District through sharing who we are and what we know.
All of the classes will be offered with simultaneous ASL translation so as to make the event accessible to the deaf and hearing communities.
You can see a full list of speakers and classes at dayoflearning.org. While the event will occur without the Awesome Foundation's support, the ability to convert the entire space into a learning playground will likely not be possible.
