After years of waiting Croatian Sign Language has finally been recognised on July 10th 2015.

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 15th European Rehabilitation and Cultural Week of the Deafblinds (ERCW) 2014.
The ERCW 2014 is going to take place in Visegrád, Hungary from 25th to 31st of August, 2014 hosted by the Hungarian Deafblind Association celebrating its 20th anniversary.
Note: We had made an improvement and better English wording of the name of the whole multi-event that is to be the “Celebration of the Specific Capabilities of the Deafblind” and to be different and not to be mixed with the word “Festival” that remains only for the “Amateur Arts Festival”. As well in English there are idioms “celebration of diversity” and “to celebrate diversity” that is closely emanates with the motto “Unity in diversity”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unity_in_diversity
