Events

We believe that experience of hearing loss should be visible and understood in New Zealand.

That's why we are working hard to raise awareness for the everyday experiences of Deaf and hard of hearing Kiwis.

All of our events focus on creating a more inclusive and accessible society that recognises the needs of our Deaf and hard of hearing community.

Hearing Awareness Month

Hearing Awareness Month is all about putting a spotlight on hearing health and raising awareness for the experiences of the 880,000+ New Zealanders who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing.

Every year organisations around New Zealand come together in March to celebrate Hearing Awareness Month. Kicking off with World Hearing Day on the 3rd of March, there are plenty of ways you can get involved.

 

Make sure you are following us on Facebook and Instagram to receive the latest updates on Hearing Awareness Month 2023.

Listen Up Conference

Access Matters: From Access Denied to Access Enabled.

On World Hearing Day, the Listen Up Conference 2023 shines a light on accessibility for your Deaf or hard of hearing employees and customers.

With one in six New Zealanders living with hearing loss - accessibility isn’t just an option

 

What is the cost of denying access through a lack of accommodation? What are the accessibility strategies you can put in place in your organisation to enable and empower?

 

Join us to discover how to transform your workplace into one that enables Deaf and hard of hearing employees and customers.
