From the Editors' Desk
A lot of stories revolve around what we can immediately see, hear and experience. In this issue, we’ve endeavoured to explore concepts and tell stories of spaces that aren’t readily in the limelight - those unassuming, unnoticed and quieter (and sometimes calmer) places that deserve to be heard.

Former Miss Deaf South Africa (2009), Vicki Fourie, shares her personal story with us about the unique ways she experiences sound and challenges the common misconception that silence is a quiet space.
