Sensory Event

mela Poster (final)

A’Salaamu Allaikum (Islamic greeting meaning peace on you)

As part of my work through the Edinburgh & Lothians Joint Sensory Partnership (ELJSP) ethnic minorities project,I have organised an event called Sensory Mela 2014 taking place on Wednesday 21st May at Deaf Action, 49 Albany Street, Edinburgh – please see attached posters (including accesible word version).

The event is designed to promote the support services offered through RNIB Scotland and Deaf Action to ethnic minority Communities in Edinburgh & Lothians and will also be a good opportunity for our organisation / staff to engage directly with potential Service users, families or carers of someone with sigh or hearing loss and to make links with ethnic minority community organisations.

There will be a range of activities taking place at the event including workshops and presentations (agenda to follow), as well as an Exhibition area with information stalls from some of the key minority ethnic projects.

I would appreciate if you could circulate awareness of this event to your ethnic minority service users as well as attending the event yourself and placing the poster on your noticeboards and websites / facebook page.

Attendance at this FREE event is through registration, this can be done
