SummerWrite, Writers & Books’ flagship program for youth, will roll out Deaf Lens on Aug. 17-28 for deaf and hard-of-hearing teens to learn the ins and outs of filmmaking.
The two-week summer camp, conducted in American Sign Language, will have participants examining and challenging stereotypes and representations of deaf people in the arts, cinema and design. Teens will consider received opinions surrounding considerations of race, gender, autism and other important issues in the national conversation.
Need-based scholarships are available. Visit wab.org/event/deaf-lens-these-walls-are-signing to register.
