Are you aged 12-18?

Do you live with a cochlear implant or hearing aids?

Are you fond of visual art?

Do you want to make your work of art popular around the world?

Do you want to meet talented youth from different parts of the world who share the same passions and interests?

WaveforMe is the best place for you!


WaveforMe connects youth around the world who live with cochlear implant or hearing aids by means of art!

The virtual gallery offers the young artists the chance to express themselves through art and to emphasize their own identity, opening themselves for self-expression, supporting their own development and social integration in this way.

The selected artists will have the opportunity to make their works of art popular free of charge,  through the international virtual gallery.

Eligible works: drawings, paintings, collage, photography, fashion design, sculpture, ceramic- excepting video works.

In July there will be an itinerant exhibition with a selection of the works presented in the virtual gallery, willing to be exhibited for the public in four big cities in Romania: Sibiu, Timisoara, Iasi and Bucharest in order to promote young talents.
