Deaf Spotlight inspires and showcases Deaf Culture and Sign Languages through the arts.
We at Florida Deaf Art Show (FDAS) are a nonprofit organization that promotes both emerging and experienced Deaf artists from the State of Florida. FDAS is committed to raising funds and awareness to benefit Deaf community programs in the cities that host our events. We believe in improving the quality of life for all members of the Deaf community, particularly when it comes to literacy education and the creative arts—both of which are crucial for Deaf students to flourish.
Our aim at FDAS is to promote the idea that “Deaf Can!” We strive to create an inclusive environment by using our art to build a bridge between Deaf and Hearing populations. When we provide a platform for Deaf artists to showcase their unique artwork, we are empowering the entire Deaf community. We fearlessly envision a future where the world is more accessible.
If we could convey one message to the world, it would be this:
