A bigger museum with new exhibitions that focus not only on deaf people’s culture and way of living, but also focuses on the development of language, what it means to be a part of a minority, being right or wrong when it comes to choices for your deaf child (or hearing child in a deaf family).

These are questions that give us relevant discussions and that also interest the younger generation in a way I have not seen in museums before.

I would also be glad if the deaf community would involve more in the development of the museum, and not just the location but also participate in the dialogue of who visits the museum and why.

We wish to have a government that takes responsibility for our archives and items. But they are not interested in this. We’ve had meetings with them many times, over 20 years.
