On 10 May GHA and Nest hosted a launch event for national deafblind charity Sense’s exclusive exhibition, ‘I Know I Can’t See, But I Still Look’. The exhibition highlights expressive contemporary artwork currently being created by deafblind artists working within the charity’s projects across London, Birmingham and Exeter.
Stephanie Tyrrell, Arts & Wellbeing Projects Manager, at Sense, said: “We’re delighted to bring the exhibition to Birmingham. This special collection of work showcases some of the best visual arts, ceramics and textiles being created by artists with sensory loss.”
GHA have a close working relationship with Sense and are currently working with the charity to design and realise their new TouchBase Pears building, due to complete in summer 2017. More information on the project is available here.
In addition, 17 members of GHA staff will be walking 26 miles in 12 hours in aid of the charity on June 18 as part of The Ridgewalk. More information about the event can be found here.
The exhibition is open to the general public at the Nest Gallery in Birmingham (321 Bradford St, B5 6ET) from 11 May until 7 June (Mon-Friday, 10am-4pm).
