There are large gaps in the archiving and celebration of deaf heritage in Scotland. Solar Flares: Deaf Heritage seeks to bridge this gap in three ways: topics, projects and outreach and engagement.

Topics: individual topic pages, such as deaf clubs or deaf young people, that not only provide background information but also ask questions and provoke debate.

Projects: individual pieces of original digital art exploring key areas within deaf heritage led by and produced by the deaf community, often connected to a specific topic.

Outreach and engagement: we aim to engage as many people as possible with this project online, at events/festivals, talks, seminars and within the education system.

The project was funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and our thanks to National Lottery players for making it possible.
