Organization: Doulderis Georgios & SIA E.E.

Project title: “Feel too” & “Transforming sound to picture”

Regions: Greece

Outline of the event:

The event will take place in the biggest mall in our city Thessaloniki, in Greece and will last for 3 days. It will consist of 2 parts:

1.”Feel too”

Target: Raise awareness of how untreated hearing loss can affect everyday life and psychology of a person.

Earplugs will be handed out to normal hearing people in order to wear them for a full day, “living” like a person with an untreated hearing loss. Afterwards, they will fill out an online questionnaire to share their experience.

2.”Transforming sound to picture”

Target: Show that all the senses are linked with each other and if hearing loss is present, person will lose overall sensation levels.

A person chooses a sound that pops in their mind and in real time an artist will create a sketch of this sound in paper (linking the senses of hearing and vision).
