Gordon Snelgrove Gallery: Prism Project

As an invisible disability, the experience of being non-culturally deaf or hard-of-hearing is often processed as a private internal experience. By coming together to share their stories, the participants in Prism Project found common ground through similarities and a broadening of perspectives through differences.

The gallery exhibition of Prism Project includes portraits, personal stories and videos of ASL translations for each participant; some participants have also contributed original artworks. Prism Project originated as a web project led by Sarah Vermette with the intent of acting as a portal for deaf/hard-of-hearing people to share their stories ( www.prismproject.ca ).

Oct. 30–Nov. 10
Gordon Snelgrove Gallery
Gallery Hours: 9:30 am–4:30 pm
Reception: Nov. 10, 7:00 pm

co-curated by Susan Shantz and Sarah Vermette.
