Trip to Art Gallery

Trip to Art Gallery 

On 28th March, we visited Wolverhampton Art gallery to see our deaf filmmaker Jack 

Smallwood’s work in the gallery. 

We enjoyed looking around the art gallery as we saw so many different various styles of art. 

Some of artwork was beautiful with old style portraits from the Victorian times and some from the Georgian times. We all discussed about different styles of paintings and how life back at that time would be different. 

 

Finally, we saw Jack Smallwood's film which made us all very proud to be deaf, It helped us realise how film and media can represent our identity, culture, and community and see how art and sign language can be linked. There were many hearing people there that noticed that we were using sign language and It was a powerful moment to show that we are proud of our culture and we are also very proud of Jack Smallwood's film, 'to break to two worlds into one'. 

Please look at this video link for Jack Smallwood’s video.
