    LISten Project is the accessibility project by The Blank born in 2017 and dedicated to deaf and hear-impaired audience.

    The project aims to increase the accessibility to deaf audience to contemporary art and culture, to develop an inclusive strategy and to facilitate the placement of deaf young people in the cultural field.

    According to the principles of  “Design for All”, the project allows deaf people to enjoy museums and exhibition spaces, their facilities and cultural contents, in the respect of their linguistic and communicative specificities.

    Thanks to the collaboration between deaf and hearing professionals in the art field, LISten Project has developed numerous accessible cultural proposals, including guided tours, workshops for children and adults and lectures in Italian Sign Language (LIS).

    Each proposal is made possible by our staff of LIS cultural mediators, able to design and deliver educational activities, also in collaboration with museums and other cultural institutions.

    In addition, LISten Project develops a research on deafness, inclusion and accessibility and promotes the dialogue between institutions and international museum professionals.

    Over the years LISten Project has collaborated with museums such as Accademia Carrara and GAMeC – Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea (Bergamo), Pirelli HangarBicocca (Milan), MAMbo – Museo d’Arte Moderna (Bologna), BeGo Museo Benozzo Gozzoli (Castelfiorentino, Florence) , Tate Modern and Tate Britain (London).

    #iolosegnocosì #tucomelosegni? is the new video project by LISten Project designed to promote the dissemination of LIS signs related to the field of visual arts.

    The project aims to generate a constructive linguistic debate through social platforms, in order to encourage the use and dissemination of visual culture among deaf audience.

    Through dozens of videos, our LIS cultural mediators show the signs elaborated and used during their research and their mediation work, accompanying them with a brief explanation.

    Our cultural mediators accompany deaf and hearing children and their families to discover Italian Sign Language through creative workshops on contemporary art.

    The accessible art workshops in LIS create a dimension in which it is possible to overcome the communication barriers, that sometimes separate deaf children from hearing children, and to discover a common and unifying space of dialogue and fun.
