The exhibit was held from April 2-5, 2013, 9:00am to 5:00pm, at the Greenway Square of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde’s Taft Campus.
Through this the students hope to make more people aware of the Filipino Deaf Life which includes economic, political and socio-cultural aspects and also to know more about the Deaf World. This is a way of advocating for the Filipino Deaf Community.
