Looking for my next
to make a change.
The artistic way.
This is me
My name is Vilma Jackson and I am a Deaf performance artist, fluent in British Sign Language. I have worked as a performing artist for 12 years in many different roles including TV, Films, Theatre and many other fields.
I recently set up my own company – Vilma Jackson Productions. I am acutely aware of the lack of opportunity and representation for the Black and Asian members of the Deaf community. Through my production company I want to give them opportunity by promoting diversity, showcasing talent and giving valuable work experience as production crew on new and exciting projects, I will provide opportunity.
I have been lucky to learn from great directors and actors in both the hearing and deaf worlds – these lessons inspired me to create Vilma Jackson Productions. So far, I have created “Triple Oppression” and “The Vilma Jackson Show” under the Vilma Jackson Productions umbrella. I would like to form a bridge between the hearing and deaf worlds. The work is for you to enjoy. I am planning more projects under the umbrella of Vilma Jackson Productions to explore my creativity further.

I create compelling
and campaign for change
Two years ago I created Vilma Jackson Productions with the express intention of introducing mainstream audiences to the talent within the deaf community. Through art I want to highlight the social inequalities we face everyday. Awareness is the first step towards change...
I also wanted to create 'opportunity'. Opportunity for diverse artists, crew and production team members to gain experience working on high end projects.
