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.
The workshop will consist of a warm-up, breathing, and voice exercises which aim to equip participants with the skills to breathe from their diaphragm, warm up their voice, and properly use their breath while singing.
Keeping in mind that ‘a life without dancing is a not worth living’, we’ve added many easy-to-learn and practice dance workshops with group activities in the festival programme.
Many dance performers and workshop facilitators will be ready to help, guide and invite us with a series of performances and activities across the squares of the villages of Kastro, Gliki, Panaghia, Aya Teodoroi, Agridia and Shinudi.
About Hatha Yoga
“The main purpose of Hatha Yoga is to bring the vital energy into balance.”
Our Hatha Yoga practice includes different anatomical or chakra themed poses, breathing techniques and meditation. With these studies, we are attempting to know and transform ourselves physically and mentally. We maintain our well-being with our practices of calming and resting.
