Translating the Deaf Self is an AHRC research project which began in 2016 at the University of Manchester and Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh. The project explores Deaf British Sign Language users' experience of being translated by BSL interpreters and the connections of translation to Deaf culture. During the course of this pioneering research the academic team identified a need to find innovative approaches which could yield a deeper understanding of the complexity of translation and its connections to identity and culture. One such innovation has been to use art as a means to explore the research themes. Four artists have been commissioned to work closely with the deaf community to explore Translation of the Deaf Self and create art work inspired by their interactions. The artists selected are Rubbena Aurangzeb-Tariq, Christopher Sacre, Louise Stern and an intern Ruaridh Lever-Hogg. The artists have been in residence at locations across the UK – London (Deafplus, Whitechapel), Essex (Royal Association for Deaf People (RAD)), Manchester (Manchester Deaf Centre) and Edinburgh (Deaf Action).
