The event is part of a series of centenary celebrations of Deaf Education and Audiology at The University of Manchester, and is sponsored by Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness (UoM), Starkey Hearing Technologies, Institute for Cultural Practices (UoM), and the Department of Music (UoM).

Evelyn has been profoundly deaf since the age of 12. Her TEDx talk explains how she hears with different parts of the body.

"In today’s society listening is undervalued, which leads to poor communication. Evelyn’s unique insight shows us that listening is about more than just hearing; it is about engaging, empowering, inspiring and creating bonds. True listening is a holistic act,” her website states.

Places are free, but to ensure there are enough seats, please email Dr Kevin Malone at kevin.malone@manchester.ac.uk with your name and the number of persons you wish to bring including yourself. (There will be one short break around 3pm for those who must leave before the event concludes at 4pm.)
