Arai and the Capybara. Children's radio drama about the Lower Parana River wetlands, Argentina (in Spanish)

  • 1. Taller Ecologista, Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina


This article describes the experience of making a children’s radio drama about the

island wetlands of the Lower Parana River, Argentina. The project is framed within a

view of the territory as a biocultural corridor, where the ecosystem is intertwined with

local occupations and trades, crafts, music, native communities and their cosmovisions

and languages , as well as with the current practices and uses of the wetland system,

that is, a wide array of manifestations of the region’s island wetland cultures.

To provide curricular educational material on wetlands from a perspective that contributes

to the appropriation of the island territory by their inhabitants, we decided to produce a

radio drama presenting the wetlands in some of their dimensions, favoring the use of

sound to create opportunities for children and their families to approach their landscape

and lifestyles in their various expressions.
