We invite you to join us in June 2021, for a movement that will build awareness on a global scale in a fun and captivating way.

In June 2020, DbI teased an announcement during the month-long social media campaign. On June 27, we shared that our awareness initiative for 2021 will be yarn bombing (sometimes known as ‘knitfiti’); a form of street art where yarn that is knit, crochet, or wrapped, adorns an object in a public space. It is thought to have originated in the United States in 2005.

By coming together in June, to yarn bomb objects in as many cities and countries as possible, we strive to foster connections and unite a community with individuals, service and advocacy groups in the field, DbI members and partners, and the wider global public.

Regardless of whether your country, region, or organization celebrates deafblind awareness as a month, a week, or day, our combined efforts will create a stronger and united voice.
