The Deaf Forest Community Art OpeningRegina, Saskatchewan
Visual Arts — Behind-the-scenes
This exhibit was produced by Thom Collegiate’s Deaf and Hard of Hearing students in partnership with Joanne Weber , Chrystene Ells and Berny Hi , and the Deaf Crows Collective. Using art and theatre as culturally relevant pedagogy for deep cognitive learning, personal growth and solid community building, the DHH students have emerged as an expressive force with perspectives to share, stories to tell and ideas to develop. The Deaf Forest is the first large-scale installation created by the DHH students. It represents their perspectives of three distinct communities – the Hearing world, the Hard-of-Hearing world and the Deaf World. This ambitious exhibit explores a powerful statement as a means to find understanding between these three distinct worlds.
