Videos of empowered deaf women are ready for relea

The 8 videos in Argentine Sign Language were finished and will be released on November 25 for the Day of elimination of violence in women.

Two video clips were made to be viralized in networks (photos of the clips are included) and a list of institutions related to the rights of women and people with disabilities was made so that the videos reach everywhere.

For that, a note was written accompanied by a sign language video:
"Hello women!
We are pleased to tell you that Monday 25/11 is the day of the elimination of violence against women, and we will take advantage of it to launch the videos in which we work together.
We appreciate the shared spaces for the production of these materials and ask them if they can share in the social networks the publications of Canales so we make the campaign massive and there is no woman without information! "

We will be sharing the videos on YouTube so that all women - deaf and hearing - have the same opportunities to access information and avoid violence.

Two new classic stories in Argentine Sign Language

La tortuga gigante
La tortuga gigante

As part of the program to promote reading and access to literature, Canales enlarges the platform www.videolibros.org with two new classics stories from one of the greatest writers in Argentina: Horacio Quiroga. Las medias de los Flamencos and La Tortuga gigante (The giant tortoise) are now part of the collection of stories that children use in schools within the literature program.

In this platform, which allows Deaf girls and boys to access the same books as all the children do, the stories can be found in the categories “Stories about animals”, “Classic literature and "For older children". This Uruguayan author is part of the Argentine classical literature and that is why these stories are read in Argentine Sign Language. Both stories are located in Misiones, a province in the north of our country.

A story before going to sleep, is a shared, memorable and supreme moment in the promotion of reading, that in the case of Deaf children is almost nonexistent. 95% of these children do not have a common language with their hearing family. This fact, combined with often inappropriate literacy strategies, have resulted in a Deaf community that thinks “books are not for them”. Reversing this myth will break down one of the barriers that separates Deaf people from access to information and the pleasure of reading. "That is why in Videolibros we seek that the approach to books be attractive, in both languages, that it can be shared," express the project coordinators.

In Canales one of our lines of work points towards access to quality education for Deaf children. We think that if all children can access the same readings, the vicious circle of exclusion breaks down.

 All people passionate about books can access Videobooks for free; they should only create a user, that we designed just for statistical purposes.

Sol Muñoz, a bilingual teacher for deaf children specialized in language practices, says: "Everyone deserves to have books in their own language because if we don't have books to read, there is no way to learn”.

That's why Canales is always in search of new stories. These two videobooks that join the Videolibros enSeñas platform, the winning project of the World Summit for Innovation in Education, are today available for you to enjoy.

Let´s work together so that Videobooks keeps growing!

Accessible videos for Deaf women are almost ready!

Not this way!
Not this way!

During the initial stage of this project, we organized workshops together with two NGOs, experts in gender violence and women's rights, aimed at Deaf women of a wide age range. Then, topics of interest were selected for and from this group of women and work was done in the preparation of scripts in order to record videos in Argentine Sign Language. The scripts were initially designed within the project coordinating team and then shared with the collaborating organizations responsible for checking the information dumped. Based on their comments, some details were modified and corrected and the corrected scripts were sent to the deaf women who would be the presenters of the videos.

To be part of the filming of the videos, we have called Deaf women who have participated in the workshops that were previously held. In the selection process, aspects related to the fluency in the use of sign language, its development in front of the camera and its interest in the subject were taken into account. Five women were selected to make up the team of narrators of the different videos and other women were invited to participate in small conversations.

Videos were recorded in Canales’s filming studio during two months.

Eight videos have been filmed:

  • The presentation of the project
  • Law 26.485: Integral protection of women
  • Types of violence
  • Modalities of violence
  • Women empowerment
  • Size law
  • Freedom to decide
  • Gender identity

 

Viceovers have been recorded and subtitles are being elaborated to add to the videos to guarantee access to ALL women.

We are in the last stage, the edition of the eight videos to be disseminated around Argentina.

Stay tuned to our next report!

Eight new videos will be on line for you to enjoy!
