Silent History

Calling D/deaf, blind, visually impaired and disabled people to create artwork for a new exhibition


Silent History – make artwork for new exhibition!
As part of our Hidden Histories exhibition programme at The Hive, we are exploring historical and contemporary attitudes towards disability for a new exhibition from March 2020. We are inviting members of the D/deaf, blind, visually impaired and disabled community to join us at FREE workshops throughout October 2019. The work created by participants will also be part of the final exhibition.

Workshops with Fae
Fae Kilburn is a Birmingham-based partially sighted Printmaker and fine artist. She specialises in traditional printmaking techniques, and exhibits nationally and internationally.

Her recent work is a series on mono print portraits exploring family, disability and identity. Whilst creating this work a softer colour pallet and new style has emerged.
