A little look at the First Adventist International Deaf and Deaf-blind Congress in Sevilla, Spain, 2016


Programme

Adventist International Deaf and Deaf-blind Congress Online 

The programme that we are preparing for you includes a series of interesting and original activities. You will surely find what interests you and meets your expectations in the short time of three hours of programme.

There will be moments of friendly relationship, even though only on the screen; listening to messages presented by selected speakers; watching interesting presentations and music.

The guests are Deaf and professional speakers:

  • Jitka Moravkova – Friday
  • Douglas Da Silva - Saturday
  • Henry Maina Kamau – Saturday
  • Carlos Martinez, International Mime, will be with us and will present three pieces.


We will have the presence of
Larry Evans, Adventist Possibility Ministries Responsible at General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists
Jeff Jordan, Associate Coordinator for Deaf Ministry for the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists

There will be also an interactive segment where you are called to present your contribution:   
A. A lottery to gain a prize
The lottery game is very simple, it's all about luck. We will draw three names from the list of those who have registered, and send them a gift.
B. Through my Dress. A performace to show your best and original dress
This game requires creativity and imagination. Think of a disguise that makes you original, such as a special hat, a special jacket, or a dress.
We will reward whoever our jury thinks has the most original disguise.
ATTENTION, come prepared, you will dress up when we say so in the programme on Saturday afternoon.

C. Through my Frame. A picture through an original frame
This game requires creativity and imagination. Think about having your picture taken through a frame. It could be an original frame, it could be an object you hold in your hand, it could be a position of your body.
We will award the prize to the person who, according to our jury, has the most original idea.
ATTENTION, come prepared, we will take your photo when we say so in the programme on Saturday afternoon.


ATTENTION: In order to particopate to the games, you need to register here: Congress Registration
