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.
