WHO WE ARE
The FLOW Festival team
The concept of Flow Festival was created and developed by Ramas McRae, Irene Holub and Medina Sumovic who are all deaf and involved in the Arts industry with the deaf and hearing communities. They are well known as artists, teachers and facilitators, and key players in the Deaf community in Victoria.
FLOW Festival will deliver a vibrant and unique festival of Deaf Arts by the Australian Deaf Community, in partnership with Arts Access Victoria. It will showcase Auslan, sign language of the Australian Deaf Community through many different artistic forms for all ages, embracing diversity and inclusion. Deaf artists/performers will engage, create and share the experiences including exhibitions, performances, workshops, gatherings and celebrations with local participants.
The festival will host Auslan X, Auslan storytelling, Visual Vernacular performances, dance, short film screening, children' art activities, graffiti workshop, deaf indigenous storytelling/workshop, artists talks, exhibition, deaf slam poetry workshops and presentations.
