Room for all art forms…

  
Earlier this year I was invited down to the See Hear studios in Bristol to feature on a panel discussing art forms in the deaf community. 

Representing the sign song corner, I was asked to explain why the genre should be considered part of deaf culture and asked my view on the increasing sign song appearances in mainstream music videos. 

Joining me on the panel were John Wilson – a BSL poet- and Ace Mahbaz – a Visual Vernacular performer. 

The whole episode can be viewed here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b06p174j/see-hear-series-35-11-deaf-visual-performance and the still image above is of myself with the presenter, Clive Mason. 

I hope you enjoy it ūüėä
