"This is my voice!" Photo Exhibition in Cluj

Have you ever wondered how someone who doesn’t hear the sounds around him still perceives this world? What matters for this person, what are its frustrations, what makes him/her feel excited, loved, what are its wishes and dreams? We have raised all these questions, we found the answers, and therefore now we invite you to discover and understand them.

Euroarte Association and ArtImage Association from Cluj invite you to the photo exhibition "This is my voice", which presents a selection of photographs taken by 40 deaf young people from Romania and Poland in the PhotoVoice modules developed from May to September, 2011. "This is my voice!" – a project coordinated by Euroarte in partnership with the Association Vasiliada / Romania, Silent Voices and Intercultural Polish Group / Poland - is funded by the European Commission Youth in Action program, Action 1.3 - Youth Democracy Projects.

The opening of the exhibition "This is my voice!" will take place Thursday, March 1, from 18:00 in the foyer of County Library "Octavian Goga" Cluj-Napoca (str Dorobantilor, no. 104). The exhibition can be visited until March 31 2012.

The authors of the photos are 40 deaf young people from Romania and Poland, which, through photography (PhotoVoice method), express problems, opinions, needs, trying to communicate with the hearing persons.

In October 2011, the exhibition "This is my voice!" was hosted at the Student’s Culture House in Bucharest and, in November, at the Art Gallery of Military Center in Craiova. In March 2012, the works will be exhibited at the County Library "Octavian Goga" Cluj; from here the next stop of the touring exhibition is Warsaw/ Poland.
