In the weeks surrounding Helen Keller’s Birthday, the 27th June, 22 countries around the world participated in the global initiative of Yarn Bombing for Deafblind Awareness.

Australia had installations in WA, SA, VIC, NSW and QLD. Congratulations to every person who contributed to these amazing tactile artworks to spread knowledge and awareness of deafblindness while uniting Deafblind and wider communities around the world.
