At the event with wine and nibbles you can find out and get involved in our plans with Leeds Art Gallery during the British Art Show, Arthouse, Wakefield – who are offering a residency with a flat and studio space and Baltic Mill Newcastle, and of course Beaconsfield where we want to begin a Deaf Arts Network that is about deaf artists working in art spaces, intervention, and socially engaged practice (or working with deaf people and bringing them into the arts), so we are part of contemporary visual arts in the Uk and abroad.
We welcome artists in any art form, including BSL poetry, we want creative deaf people who can work, respond and create new work in art spaces, and make site specific work.
If you require travels costs or access please use contact form below.

The Deaf Cultural Centre will give deaf artists support to work professionally, and to create new work in the future that can be presented at the DCC and other venues. Our objective is to encourage and support deaf artists to work in the arts more and promote Deaf culture by demonstrating an artistic-led approach to diversity and access. Explorers is a wealth of high quality creativity on offer to arts organisations, and venues. We hope networking, collaborations, commissions and grants follow after our intrepid explorers international travel & research. We also believe the explorers will open doors for deaf audiences; by creating spaces and events where Deaf people, hearing people & hard of hearing people can all mix and socialize together and learn more and explore more about Deaf culture. We invited deaf creative’s to apply, challenging them to present proposals that would stretch their artistic practice, encouraging them to be inspired by international artists. The response was brilliant with extremely high quality proposals from the West Midlands & across the UK. We think Explorers is a fantastic opportunity and hope you do too. If you are an arts organisation or promotor and wish to meet an explorer to show or develop their work please contact us.
