Hi from London!
Amy C posted a topic in Introduce YourselfHey everyone 😊 My name's Amy and I live in London. Here's a video of me briefly introducing myself in the small amount of BSL that I know! Looking forward to getting to know others 👋
New to BSL
Angel James Wyatt posted a topic in Introduce YourselfHi all, My name is Angel and I am here to learn a new language and add to my skills. I am proficient in a few languages already, and BSL was one that I really wanted to learn as well. As wth all new languages, I find it so intersting as it comes with so many interesting facts. I am excited to continue on this wonderful journey. I am currently working at a privae medical practice in London's medical hub in Harley Street, and hopefully this new language will be useful for me in the future (and I am sure it will be). Anyway, I don't want to ramble on. x
Public workplaces need more signers!
ShaNeru posted a topic in Introduce YourselfHello~ I've been wanting to learn BSL for a while, and finally got around to it! Though I wish i had started earlier! I work in a public arts building where we get 3000 people almost daily, and after witnessing how some shows have BSL interpreters and others have voice-to-text subtitles and other support devices, I was surprised that they never thought about just teaching the staff basic signs... even a simple 'hello', 'Are you here for the show?' etc. phrases that align with what we do on the daily. We had two women come to a show who, from what I gathered, already gave up/avoided staff because no one could sign (they were still nice and smiled, but quickly got to their seats) and I'm sure they've had the same awkward greeting multiple times. it would be great if we could greet ALL our guests that come to our building, and not have some feeling left out. So here I am~~ struggling to remember to turn off my resting b*tch face 😂😂 and learning to use my whole body language ^

untilHistorian John Wilson leads this British Sign Language tour of the exhibition Under Cover: A Secret History of Cross-Dressers. Please note: This event is for BSL users only. Free, booking essential https://thephotographersgallery.org.uk/whats-on/talk/bsl-tour-of-under-cover Drawn from the extensive personal archives of filmmaker and photography collector Sébastien Lifshitz, this exhibition of amateur 'found' photographs from Europe and the US explores gender non-conformity and cross-dressing. Dating from 1880 onwards, the photos are mostly of unnamed and unknown figures – having been mainly collected from flea markets, garage sales, junk shops and ebay - and as such offer an unauthorised view into the worlds of individuals and groups choosing to defy gender conventions.
untilAt The Photographers’ Gallery Choreographer and artist Chisato Minamimura leads a British Sign Language tour of the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2018 exhibition. Free, booking essential https://thephotographersgallery.org.uk/whats-on/talk/bsl-tour-dbpfp The four artists shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2018 are Mathieu Asselin, Rafal Milach, Batia Suter and Luke Willis Thompson. Curated by TPG’s Anna Dannemann, the 2018 shortlist showcases diverse and innovative photographic practices, which recognise and celebrate the many developments within the medium, while also challenging its boundaries. All of the projects share a deep concern with the representation of knowledge through images, where facts can be manipulated and meanings can shift. Presented across the 4th and 5th floors of the Gallery, the exhibition features a searing photographic interrogation of global biotech giant, Monsanto by Mathieu Asselin; an expansive portrayal of the ubiquitous tactics of government control and propaganda from Rafal Milach; an encyclopaedic collection of visual taxonomies that expose the shifting and relative meanings of printed images depending on their context by Batia Suter; and Luke Willis Thompson’s deeply affecting filmic study of grief that reflects the personal stakes of visual representation. Collectively and individually, the four projects drive forward an artistic enquiry into the mechanics of visibility and concealment and interrogate the status and position of the image in contemporary culture.
