Home is where the heart is. And for many community members, Gallaudet University is home. We invite you to join us as we celebrate Gallaudet’s roots and its thrilling future with an #OurDeafCommunity film, major surprises, and a night of nonstop socializing!
What is the purpose of this event?
One of Convo's core values is Community. The communication solutions that we create are for the community and part of our culture is to embrace that connection only an in-person gathering can create. This is our fifth #OurDeafCommunity event and each one has been an opportunity to inspire the community with our original film and to share Convo's vision with the community.
When and where is this event?
When: Saturday, October 26
Time: 7pm to 11pm (EST)
Location: Gallaudet University at Olmsted Green (between President's House and Ole Jim)
800 Florida Ave, NE, Washington, DC 20002
Why is this event taking place during Gallaudet's Homecoming?
Homecomings are when the community gathers in person and our event is a space where all kinds of community members can meet after the day's festivities. We are truly excited to honor Gallaudet's impact on the world with our original film.
