This is Who We Are

Media in this category range from publicity posters to ceramics. Ellen Mansfield’s Euphoria and Deaf Gain: Self Portrait and Pamela Witcher’s To Be is to Be, and Deafhood Journey express the pride and joy of being Deaf, embracing Deaf identity and Deafhood. Susan Dupor, Delora Bertsch and Eddie Swayze embrace the hearing aid as a part of their identity rather than rejecting it as an unnatural intervention in We Shall Meet Again, I AM is I AM and Gay Hearing Aid, respectively. Dr. Landon McGregor’s Deaf Art 101 illustrates a serious side of Deaf history. Paul Johnston’s Four Deaf Journey and Jon Savage’s Four Coats highlight the value of diversity in the community while simultaneously celebrating the collective experiences Deaf people share.
