HIA Senior Fellow Marta Gawinek Debuts Play as Part of Her Project, "Discovering the Sounds of Silence"

December 22, 2010 | action projects

A project by HIA Senior Fellow Marta Gawinek called Discovering the Sounds of Silence, came to fruition on November 26, 2010, when a crowd of deaf-mute children joined their friends, families and teachers for the premiere of a play entitled "Forests' Olympics." One of the primary aims of the project was to integrate deaf-mute children with their non-disabled peers, as well as provide education on issues of deafness, and the event on the 26th was a grand success in this respect.

Ms. Gawinek's project had received a grant from HIA Poland and the US Embassy in Poland.
