Poster - Expo

100 years ago, on August 10, 1924, the first Deaflympics - an international sporting event for deaf athletes - then known as the International Silent Games, began in Paris, France. This same year also saw the foundation of the International Committee of Sports for the Deaf (ICSD) - then known as Comité International des Sport des Sourds (CISS).

To celebrate this centenary, the ICSD, with the support of the Institut National des Jeunes Sourds de Paris (INJS), is presenting an exhibition on the first Deaflympics. The exhibition will be open every day from April 25 to July 5, 2024, from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM at the INJS (254, rue Saint-Jacques 75005 Paris).

The Chair of the ICSD Historical Committee, Mrs Isabelle Malaurie, has been heavily involved in the preparation of the exhibition, together with INJS staff. The ICSD is presenting the exhibition as the first stage of this year's centenary celebrations.
