Papua New Guinea - Sign Language Dictionary: shooting in August 2017

Stretch Productions, University of Cologne, and Callan Service for Persons with Disabilities all signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop a Papua New Guinea Sign Language Dictionary. Professor Dany Adone from Germany (She is an Aboriginal who grew up near Darwin) will lead the project from a linguistic standpoint. Stretch Productions will shoot between 3000 – 4000 PNG signs in Port Moresby. PNG’s Deaf community from around the country will all be flown to Port Moresby to do the signs. Stretch Productions is extremely fortunate to be part of the exciting milestone – PNG Deaf community will finally have their own language be formally published.
