Opportunity to discover the world of the deaf through art for everyone.

“What is the color of sound?” is an artistic playground on the topic “Inequality of Deafness” hosted by “Listening eyes” organization and has been launched from October 22th 2018 to December 2nd 2018. This is a part of “Even it up” – an Oxfam campaign launched to work with social and government organizations to remove causes of inequality.

Besides attractive prizes, the contest is an opportunity for young people in Hanoi to explore the world of the deaf in the aspects of health, education, transportation, employment, family… It is also a chance for hearing-impaired people in Hanoi to meet and share experiences.

We believe that each of you will have a better understanding of the community and speak up for deafness. Most importantly, the Deaf and the Hearing will come closer together – it is also the message that “What is the color of sound” would like to convey.
