A collaborative platform for Ocean Imagination and Ocean Action established and led by TBA21–Academy


Abecedarium: l’Oceano in Lingua dei Segni has involved the deaf community via an open call, inviting 12 deaf participants to help build a vocabulary of terms and signs in LIS (Italian Sign Language) linked to the Ocean and its environment.

Between January and May 2021, the participants took part in 15 training sessions at the end of which they produced a series of in-depth video interviews in LIS of the first phase of the project.

Watch the video interviews on Ocean-Archive.org

“Cohabiting Within Wetness”, is the title of the third series of itinerant conversations “Venice as a Model for the Future?” curated by Barbara Casavecchia and Pietro Consolandi.

This new chapter, part of TBA21–Academy's program The Current III: The Mediterraneans: “Thus waves come in pairs” (After Etel Adnan), led by Barbara Casavecchia.
