Multi-sensory mural for deafblind people
Author: Zoe Wickens
Deafblind UK, Global Street Art, Perspicere and The Stage have developed a multi-sensory mural in London.
The mural can be found on Great Eastern Street in Shoreditch and will be live until June 7.
It represents three scenes that deafblind people say they miss the most: the sound of waves on a beach, the colours of a sunrise and the sights and sounds of a woodland walk.
CEO of Deafblind UK Steve Conway said: ‘This mural is rare in that those with sensory impairments can enjoy it as much as those with sight and hearing – something there is not enough of in today’s world. It also gives a powerful message to those who don’t know about or haven’t considered the effects of sight and hearing loss.’
