A King’s Lynn charity is looking for people to submit pictures on the theme of Communication for its autumn exhibition.

The West Norfolk Deaf Association (WNDA) is inviting photography clubs and individuals to take part and help raise awareness of the charity and those it supports.

“We have all experienced a separation from those we love and communication has been a major focus for all of us during the pandemic,” said WNDA’s general manager Anna Pugh.

“This has been made more evident with face masks, social distancing and online meetings. For the members of our community who have hearing problems it has been particularly difficult.

“We thought it would be a good time to take stock and consider what communication means to you. Visual representations of how we communicate and the absence of good communication can be easily understood and recognised – you don’t have to be a professional photographer to create an image that portrays a powerful message.”

The charity is asking for a small hanging and entrance fee to cover the cost of hiring the gallery. Twelve pictures will also be used to create a calendar to help boost funds.

The exhibition will be at the Norfolk Creative Arts Centre in Grimston from October 23 to 30. To take part call 01553 773399 or email info@wnda.org.uk

WNDA has renovated its Railway Road headquarters and offers room hire for organisations and clubs. 

It will host lipreading classes and an Introduction to Sign Language course later this year.
