Video Script

Every year the NZSL Board identifies priorities for the NZSL Fund that support the NZSL Board’s long-term planning designed to promote and maintain NZSL. For round four, the NZSL Board will be specifically looking for local and/or national initiatives (project, activities, and events) which are aligned with one or more of criteria below:

  • Enable Deaf people to develop and/or maintain ‘Deaf spaces’, places where NZSL users gather to use NZSL either face-to-face or online.
  • Enable Deaf people to develop their capability and capacity to maintain Deaf spaces.
  • Research and/or documentation of NZSL that develops knowledge of NZSL for all NZSL users.

NB: It is a requirement that all NZSL initiatives do not duplicate or displace NZSL funding, services and resources which are, or should be, the responsibility of government agencies, state sectors and organisations.

Application guidelines and further information will be available here after 2 February 2018.
