Translation Village events are organised collectively by a group of translators and interpreters, and this year the festival highlights many talented translation experts, musicians, dance performers and workshop facilitators across a wide variety of multilingual and transcultural disciplines.
We have been organizing wide-reaching public events on translation and smaller gatherings over the past five years. Each of them forms part of the richness that makes ImvrosFest the place to be for anyone who contributes to the production and distribution of knowledge and information through translation and interpretation.
This workshop will include participatory group discussions and experience sharing activities about our working conditions and wellbeing in the translation industry, and share ideas on how to improve them.
In this workshop we will discuss translation cooperatives and solidarity economy models by focusing on the case of Guerrilla Translation, an open translation cooperative based in Spain. We will analyse their innovative business and translation model, and discuss the possibilities of implementing their model in our contexts.
In this forum we will hold participatory group discussions about how to improve our working conditions and wellbeing in the translation industry.
