A considerable leap in history of deaf culture has been made by founding the Association „World of silence“ in 2006, since deaf artist since Croatia have been forgotten, unattended and left unknown, although they are worth be known in Croatian national culture. Cultural and artistic space has proved itself as the most efficient surrounding for integration of people with disabilities, especially deaf people. Our opinion is that culture with its contents must be equally accessible to all.

All exhibitions i the last 10 years of our work have been a promotion of art and culutre of deaf people, they have been a device for liberation of prejudice and a device of communication.

In its 10 years of work, association „World of silence“ has worked intensively and with great efforts on international cultural and artistic cooperation with other association and artists worldwide, especially from Italy, Russia and Poland. Anent to this 10 years, the president of Association „World of silence“ Vanda Šagovac has decided to celebrate it with a special International exhibition of deaf artists whose participants will be not only croatian, but also artists from the whole world.

This celebration named „THE CULTURE OF DEAF ART“ will take place in the European House gallery (Jurišićeva 1/1) in the period from 23rd – 27th November 2016.

Therefore I am inviting You to magnify this anniversary with Your presence as a promotion of deaf culture and their integration in social community through art.

We are looking forward to see You !
