A 43-minute documentary taking you through the history of Auckland Deaf Society, the second home of the Deaf community of Auckland.

A 43-minute documentary on Auckland Deaf Society (ADS), the second home of the Deaf Community of Auckland. ADS, established in 1937, is an organisation that provides a unique cultural bonding opportunity for Deaf people, where they can truly express themselves as members of the Deaf community. What inspired members of the Auckland Deaf community to ensure their club’s survival for more than 70 years, starting from a basic room with a few tables to a magnificent building worth millions of dollars? This document will take you on an exciting journey to discover how this was achieved and the true meaning of such a club, which is widely regarded by many Deaf people as their second home.

ADS acknowledges to the highest degree, its past and current members who poured their hearts tirelessly and passionately, on a voluntary basis over many years, to ensure the achievement of the Deaf Club’s goals.
