Silent = Enlist = Listen

Having lost most of her hearing at eight years old, Evelyn Glennie embarked on a unique journey to discover how to listen again. She has developed a method of using her body as a resonating chamber, which has provided her with new ways of experiencing and perceiving sound. 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.
