CHIVA is launching a new British Sign Language and subtitled version of it’s successful ‘Life Growing Up’ film today. This version has been created to enable the deaf community to access the vital HIV information and experiences the film presents.
Life Growing Up is a performance based 12 minute film, derived from the arts engagement project Art is Key , which was run in partnership with Turtle Key Arts in 2018. A series of creative workshops explored the lived experiences of growing up with HIV, with a group of 17-24 year olds from across the UK. The group worked with musicians, spoken word artists and performance art facilitators, to express and examine their experiences, challenges and successes.

The film is available to watch now on YouTube
