With VicHealth's support Arts Access created The Ripple Effect. Inspired and led by deaf artists, The Ripple Effect held workshops for young hard of hearing youth in their local communities to build skills, share stories and connect through dance, drama and physical arts.

Local dance and drama teachers also learnt how to be inclusive of deaf people in their classes and provide more regular opportunities for young deaf people to dance.
