Hello! Not sure if you're asking about a recent event or historical one. But...
There was a conference held at Gallaudet University in July 1989 called "The Deaf Way." There was also a book published documenting the event. From the Google Book description (there is no free copy available online):
The Deaf Way documents the vast scholarly and artistic endeavors that took place in July 1989 when more than 6,000 deaf people from around the world met at Gallaudet University to celebrate Deaf culture. More than 150 articles by world-renowned experts examine every aspect of Deaf life in societies crisscrossing the globe. This outstanding volume is divided into ten distinct sections: Deaf Culture Around the World, Deaf History, The Study of Sign Language in Society, Diversity in the Deaf Community, Deaf Clubs and Sports, The Deaf Child in the Family, Education, Deaf/Hearing Interaction, Deaf People and the Arts, and Deaf People and Human Rights Issues.
If you'd like to get a copy of this book, Palo Alto College library has it. You can either go there to check it out with your Alamo Colleges ID or you can ask us to get the copy delivered here to SAC via Interlibrary Loan.
