What it is it like to be deaf? How do the hearing impaired live? What difficulties impede their assimilation into the major society?
The Moholy-Nagy Art University students cooperate to help us find the answers to these questions. For those who have already asked them and for those who have never even emerged this problem.
Social Campaign for the Hearing impaired subculture visibility
The society of the hearing impaired constitutes a preserved subculture within the major society. Their operation is invisible for outsiders. If we are not connected to a problem in any ways, it is not at all easy to gain information about it. Except if the experience is accessible through a medium.
This thought inspired the Moholy-Nagy Art university joint cooperation in the framework of which students familiarise with the life of the hearing impaired starting from September 2019 at the course of the media and design department. They turn their experiences into an outcome which if delivered to the crowds, we can trigger a high volume social sensitivity.
The Munka-Kör Foundation provides its expert knowledge, the art university students provide their creativity. The specialty of the course is that the topic is accurate and to present it, the Munka-Kör Foundation insures participation of deaf, hearing impaired, family members, relatives, friends, and additional experts of the field. It also takes the role of casting.
