A collaborative installation made by deaf young people, exploring issues of representation and deaf culture.
Part of PHM’s landmark exhibition Nothing About Us Without Us.
Through a mixture of text, image and mini protest sculptures, this installation has given deaf young people an opportunity to express themselves and how they feel about their deafness.
It aims to challenge the stigma that is often linked to deafness, and provoke conversations around how understanding and images of deafness and deaf culture are presented.
Has there been progress or not? Through the creation of the installation, the young people involved explored ideas about the changes they would like to see, and how these might come about.
This installation has been designed by a group of deaf young people from the I Can Get On! youth project; a project that inspires young people to achieve their full potential and dream bigger, managed and co-ordinated by The Community & Heritage CIC, on behalf of Manchester Deaf Centre.
Suitable for all ages.
Part of PHM’s co-curated programme of activity exploring the history of disabled people’s rights and activism.
