Audiovisability warmly invites you to our showcase ‘The Unheard World’ which explores the experience of the richness of Middle Eastern and Sudanese cultures, as well as migration, deafness, identity and language from a deaf perspective, by working with professional artists and individuals from the UK, Syria, Iraq, Middle East and the Arab-Sudanese region.
Whilst music is the core driver for Audiovisability, we work across art-forms including live painting, accessible music captioning, signed languages, textiles, photography, film and other visual arts to illustrate the auditory. This unique fusion of elements allows the stories of the ‘unheard’ world to be told to all.
