Seeing Things (Together) LUX D/deaf Artists’ Film Commissions

5th March at 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Free
Seeing things

Our favourite things about seeing a film or an exhibition is chatting about it afterwards, but as this can’t always happen at the moment, we’ve created a space on Zoom where we can see things together and have a chance to share our thoughts afterwards if we want to.

Seeing Things, Friday 5th March, 3pm to 4.30pm, Online, Women only, 16+

Each session will be a virtual “trip” to see or watch something (short films, performances, online exhibitions or music) followed by an informal and open chat facilitated by our Seeing Things volunteers.  These sessions are about exploring women artists together, regardless of how little or how much we know about art.

We’d love you to join as many sessions as possible but you are welcome to drop in for one aswell.

This session we’ll watch together two short films by d/Deaf artists commissioned by LUX, learning about how films can be made accessible to people who are d/Deaf or have a hearing impairment.

You can find out more about the films here: https://lux.org.uk/event/d-deaf-artists-film-commissions

 

Do l understand the art work? Do l like it, love it or just don’t get it?  [With Seeing Things] after
each exhibition or workshop we open up a conversation about it and it has been funny and
insightful how we all see things differently or maybe not. – Previous Seeing Things participant

This is one of our “take part” events this Spring!

 

Upcoming sessions:
Friday 26th March, 3pm to 4.30pm
Saturday 10th April, 1pm to 3.15pm
