Claire Bridge and Chelle Destefano
What I Wish I’d Told You
Bringing inclusion to the centre, Claire Bridge and Chelle Destefano collaborate with Deaf community to decolonise hearing spaces. Working together as collaborators and allies, Bridge and Destefano are winners of the West Space/Footscray Community Arts Commission 2022 for What I Wish I’d Told You.
“‘What I Wish I’d Told You’, is an immersive exhibition which centers Deaf voices, identity and culture. AUSLAN storytellers are visible, front and centre, affirming Deaf experiences, in large scale immersive video projections.” — Chelle Destefano and Claire Bridge.
Shared with humour, wit, courage, and care, What I Wish I’d Told You transforms the gallery into a Deaf space and Deaf Cultural experience. fortyfivedownstairs
