WCI is thrilled to be returning to Northeastern University for their 20th Annual ASL Festival! We will once again be one of the featured exhibitors Friday, March 31st at the event hosted by the American Sign Language Program at Northeastern University.
The George W. Veditz ASL Festival began in 1997 and features three main events for the Deaf Community of Massachusetts. The festival kicks off on Friday with the finals of the Marie Jean Philip ASL Poetry, Storytelling and Deaf Art Competition. The exhibitors start at 3pm and lead right up to the performance segment of the evening, which will be held in the Blackman Auditorium. The festival closes after a day of workshops scheduled throughout Saturday.
Our staff will be on hand representing WCI at the Festival from 3pm-9:30pm. We hope to see many of our staff and Individuals there! This event is a great opportunity for our staff who are learning American Sign Language at DEAF Inc. and Communicative Health Care to experience Deaf Culture and see ASL used by some of the most talented Deaf performers, artists, poets and storytellers in the country today.
