The Belinda Mason Trust supports Blur Projects to create multi-media projects which provide a personal insight into the live-experience of people who are impacted by multiple discriminations or disadvantage. Their stories challenge audiences to reconsider any prejudices and misconceptions they may have, and ask them to first discover what is similar and familiar, to enable an ability to understand better, diversity and difference.  We ask you to open your heart and your mind to the participant of these projects, as they have not only exposed their body by being photographed but also their soul by sharing expressing with you,  the most intimate of emotions and thoughts.  The support and the guidance of the participants of each exhibition have been critical to the integrity of the work.

The projects consist of short films, books, apps, audio interviews, soundscapes, 2D photographic images plus non-traditional 3D sculptural photographic artworks.

We hope that you take the time to view the many different projects that we have created. The projects also have app for people with sensory, cognitive or learning impairments, books, DVD and film documentaries, hard copy text panels and catalogues. Some projects also include artworks or precious items that the participants have provided to create a larger context of their lives. Each exhibition is available for display in a  gallery or library space and can be curated to suit the gallery spaces to immerse the audience to into the world of the participants and the artists.

“Without stories , there is silence.
Without stories told, we are voiceless.
Without our stories heard, we are invisible.
It is even harder, when the stories are hard to hear and impossible to imagine.
Once the story is told, it is part of our own journey to learn empathy, rather than compassion.
We cannot argue when someone says, I ‘feel’, it is not our right.
Our own reaction exposes us to ourselves and our ability to listen when someone lays their naked soul in our path.
– Belinda Mason, Creative Director
