Mission Statement

The objective of the MERGE Art Collective is to facilitate artistic collaboration between Deaf/DeafBlind/Hard of Hearing/DeafDisabled and hearing visual and performing artists to inspire new art and cross-cultural understanding through a bicultural performance experience.

With visual poetry and sign language at the forefront of the performance and music as added support, we demonstrate through a new artistic medium the need in our hearing-centric society to support the artwork and livelihood of friends in the deaf community.

Together, new art can be created, and a dialogue between our two communities can begin.
