About this event

‘Silent History’ explores the Jewellery Quarters relationship with members of the d/Deaf, blind and disabled community through its industrial history, alongside contemporary reflection curated by artists Fae Kilburn and Olivier Jamin.

Both artists have worked with groups across Birmingham to produce a series of works exploring the dreams and ambitions of d/Deaf, blind and disabled individuals, as well as discussing experiences of employment and workplace culture today.

The outcome has been an exhibition that brings together art and language. The words displayed throughout the gallery are the participants own – powerful and evocative, they show how they see themselves and want to be seen, as well as how they feel within the workplace and barriers they face.

This exhibition will run from the 10th August - 3rd September 2021 - Tickets are available to book FREE, with timed entry to aid social distancing and reduce the number of people in the gallery at any one time - You have a 1 hour time slot to spend in the gallery.

Please book 1 ticket per person attending for the time and date you require.
