We recently caught up Deaf artist, Zoe Milner, to discuss the role that British Sign Language (BSL) has played in her life.
A fine art student, from Nottingham Trent University, has been breaking down barriers and raising Deaf awareness through her artwork. Zoe’s recent ‘I talk with my hands’ art exhibition, which shares her experiences growing up profoundly Deaf, has been taking the media by storm.
In our interview, we discuss:
- What it was like growing up in a hearing family
- Barriers that the Deaf community face
- How communication barriers have shaped Zoe’s artwork
- Deaf culture
- Hopes for the future with Deaf inclusion
Part 1: Painting a picture of Deaf experiences
Part 2: Barriers the Deaf community face
Part 3: Growing up in a hearing family and educational barriers
Part 4: Deaf culture and future hopes with inclusion

We look forward to working with Zoe again later in the year.
