WHO WE ARE and WHAT WE DO?
We are a team of Post-graduate students studying Digital Media at University of Surrey. Our project is a collaboration with Sight for Surrey, a charity that supports people who are visually impaired, blind, Deaf, deafblind or hard of hearing.
Campaign : ‘Joy beyond sight’ #joybeyondsight
The mission of this project is to help blind and visually impaired children and young people and their families enjoy a weekend away trying new experiences and activities, bringing them closer together as a family.
Sight for Surrey is a small local charity that supports people who are blind, visually impaired, Deaf, deafblind and hard of hearing. When a child is diagnosed with a serious sight problem it can be a very emotional and difficult time for the whole family. There are also many practical considerations to contend with. Sight for Surrey support visually impaired children & their families in day to day tasks helping reduce isolation and bringing fun into their lives with a weekend away.

Losing my sight had nothing to do with my focus on music. My passion for music was already there, so it would be a mistake to give too much significance to my blindness.
