What does it mean to take something or someone at ‘face value’?

On Thursday 13 October, join Christine Sun Kim for an interactive workshop, drawing on her work as well as basic American and British Sign Language, to explore how seemingly small and fleeting gestures can start or stall our communication with others.

Culminates in the creation of a short collaborative film.

The workshop is open to all and fully accessible to D/deaf, hard of hearing and hearing participants. No prior experience of British Sign Language (BSL) or American Sign Language (ASL) is needed.

On Friday 14 October, visit Tate Exchange on Level 5 of the Switch House and watch a selection of films curated by Christine Sun Kim.
