Part of our work at Expression Australia includes providing information, resources and workshops to the wider community about Deaf and hard of hearing people and the day-to-day challenges they face. Expression Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that receives approximately 45% of its operating costs from state and federal governments. The remaining 55% of operational funding is derived from the Society's fundraising initiatives and service fees where applicable.

*Used with a lower case “d”, the term “deaf” includes all who are hard of hearing, hearing impaired or signing deaf.

No. 16; Pink Cover; Size 29Hx14W; 24 pages

Historical information

"The Gesture" was an independent organ of the Deaf and Dumb having no direct connection with any single organisation. Its aim was to help all agencies established to promote the advancement of the Deaf and Dumb. The aim was to be the "Voice" of the Deaf and Dumb of Australasia". To educate the public as to the real condition and needs of the afflicted brothers and sisters, to bring prominently before the hearing and speaking community the peculiar difficulties and obstacles that Deaf Mutes have to encounter in the battle of life. The magazine was named "The Gesture" with the single object of impressing upon the minds of the hearing friends the uncontrovertable fact that whatever the system of instruction the Deaf Mute invariably resorts to the manual alphabet and the language of gesture as the only expedient means of communication with those similarly afflicted.

Significance

The "Gesture" is significant as the first national newsletter of the Australian Deaf.
