La Parole Aux Sourds is a play on words that roughly translates to « A microphone for the deaf ». This Paris-based nonprofit focuses on amplifying the voice of the deaf community by teaching sign language courses, and offering support through e-learning, in person workshops, and one-on-one counseling.
All funds raised from Unsilenced will go towards the development of La Parole Aux Sourds’ e-learning school, set to launch in September 2018. The school will offer classes in International Sign Language at a variety of levels.
In order to make the user aware of the obstacles that deaf people encounter on a daily basis, the clip features Billy, a deaf professional dancer, who, through an enchanting choreography, « sings » a song in sign language.
To understand the lyrics, the user is prompted to "unsilence" Billy, generating the appearance of waves making the lyrics appear discreetly in sync with the music of the clip. The interaction places the user in front of an irrevocable observation: the need to strengthen the links between deaf and hearing people.
