Event Series Event Series: Tap into ASL

Tap into ASL [Asheville Beer Week]

May 23 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for “Tap Into ASL,” a vibrant monthly event hosted at Highland Brewing! This inclusive gathering welcomes both deaf and hearing individuals to come together for a unique experience of learning American Sign Language (ASL), socializing, and enjoying games.

ASL Learning Sessions: Engage in interactive ASL learning sessions facilitated by experienced instructors. Whether you’re a beginner or looking to enhance your signing skills, there’s something for everyone.

Socialize and Connect: Forge new connections and friendships in a welcoming environment that encourages open communication. Meet individuals from diverse backgrounds who share a passion for ASL.

Meet your host, Hope! Born Deaf, Hope didn’t learn ASL until her teens but despite the late start, she is an accomplished educator having taught science at the NC School for the Deaf, ASL at Blue Ridge Community College, as well as private instruction and tutoring.

As an A.C. Reynolds graduate with degrees in Biology and Sociology from Salem College and a Master’s in Sign Language Education from Gallaudet University Hope has a rich educational background and this Spring she will begin pursuing an Ed.D. in Deaf Studies from Lamar University.

Hope is a strong advocate for the Deaf community and is serving her second term on the NC Council for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.  When she is not practicing yoga or training for her first marathon Hope loves solving word puzzles, hiking with her partner Brian, playing with their animals (2 dogs & cat) or traveling to visit her two adult children.
