‘Changer: A Hand Telling’ (Movie Screening for International Week of Deaf People 2023)

Date / Time

September 20, 2023

3:30 pm - 5:00 pm


In honor of International Week of Deaf People 2023 (Sept. 18-24), join the UIC Library Undergraduate Engagement Program and the Disability Cultural Center to experience Sound Theatre Company’s “Changer: A Hand Telling.”

“Changer: A Hand Telling” shares the Coast Salish tale of Changer, transformed into a sign-language based narrative featuring two Deaf Native storytellers, and filmed on Lower Elwha S’Klallam Tribe land.

Light refreshments will be served!

To make the event accessible for immunocompromised people, we will ask that everyone wear a mask when they are not eating. The film has an audio track and captions in addition to signed storytelling. We will have live captions (CART) and ASL for our conversation. Please contact dcc@uic.edu with any accessibility requests or questions.
