The arts should be about taking on different perspectives and understanding them. As Australia’s only Deaf Arts festival, FLOW Festival producer Irene Holub believes in opening up those perspectives. ‘Deaf Arts is one way of seeing and embracing the Deaf culture in our community, Deaf Arts demonstrates our lived progress in the hearing world,’ Holub told ArtsHub.

Presented as part of Darebin Arts FUSE Digital festival, this year’s FLOW festival is made up of diverse performers from across Australia.
