WORKSHOPS with Artists from the film

"Deaf Jam stimulates the desire in viewers to dive into the creative process, whether they know ASL or if this is their first exposure. The energy of the film is infectious!" Heidi M. Rose, PhD, Associate Professor, Performance Studies, Villanova University

The film and workshops are being used as a tool for empowerment, creativity, dialogue, tolerance, and collaboration. Workshops have been held at high schools, Universities, and with community groups and organizations.

Workshops in ASL poetry and Slam poetry are available for hearing and deaf participants combined or separate.
The following options are available:

  • One workshop (2 to 3 hours)
  • Two day workshops culminating in a performance
  • Two day workshops including a video component to create video poems
  • Weekend intensives culminating in a slam competition

Please contact us for a list of fees and details -
Specific Artists will be based on availability.
