New company with big goals
Winkshop was founded only recently, but before the company was even filed with the state Wink had a clear vision in how Winkshop would contribute to the ASL community regardless of our size and capital.
Our Priorities of Three
Winkshop has a set of three core initiatives that we want to do everything in our power to help. These three interests do not limit us from contributing to others, but these three are the ones we are actively seeking out to contribute too.
Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse
Check back soon to learn how Winkshop is partnering with others. Also sign up for our newsletter to be up to date on our efforts. Click Here
Deaf Children Access to Education
Deaf children have been ignored for too long, the Deaf community and their suggestions on this issue have been widely rejected. The educational system has had since 1880 to try their practices and they have failed for the most part. Winkshop wants to effect change and we currently are in the works on different projects to address this issue and is open to partnering with anyone who has already started this movement. Contact Us
Access to History
"We are doomed to repeat history if we do not learn the mistakes of our past" is a common saying that we may be aware of. But what about those that cannot access sites of historical interest in their native language? Specially ASL. Winkshop's founder Wink has a passion for history and loves the storytelling nature that history provides. We offer translation services to museums and historical site tours into ASL, please contact us to recommend a museum for us to contact or if you are a representative from a museum please contact us!
An example of this endeavor is our donated translation of the "General Audio Tour" to The Sixth Floor Museum At Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas. This extraordinary museum chronicles the assassination and legacy of President John F. Kennedy. Click Here To Learn More
