Audiovisability is delighted to present a brand new performance showcase - The Unheard World - funded by Arts Council England, the Arab British Centre, and Decibels Year of Sound.
The Unheard World explores the experience of deafness, migration, displacement and loss, plus language from a deaf perspective by working with 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 artforms including live painting, accessible music captioning, signed languages, textiles, photography, film, and other visual arts to illustrate the auditory.
This project is led by Creative Director and musician, Ruth Montgomery.
Composition by Waseem Kotoub.
Live paintings by Rachel Gadsden.
Creative sign by Nadia Nadarajah.
Textiles by Omeima Mudawi-Rowlings.
Photography and writing by Stephen Iliffe.

Come and watch the first showcase of Audiovisability's The Unheard World at the Arlington Arts Centre, Newbury, on Wednesday the 18th of October at 2.30pm. Entry is free, and there will be a Q&A session with the artists following the concert.
