Hello and welcome to my first blog ever!
I have received Arts Council England funding to have mentoring and professional development in order to be able to access the art world as a Deaf artist, which I currently find very difficult. I need BSL (British Sign Language) interpretation for everything that I do. I am working alongside Jennifer Gilbert and will be posting regularly on here and on my new social media channels about my new skills and learning. I will also make a new series of work and exhibit this in an accessible way in Manchester next year – watch this space!
The video below is me saying “Hello. My name is Glen. I am a Deaf artist. Today I have been setting up my new social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.” I did the training with Alex from Altrincham HQ and received a certificate afterwards. I will do a separate blog post about what I learnt from this training and how other Deaf artists might find using social media useful.
