Un confinamiento de cuentos: a multimedia book accessible to everyone!

Inclusion, fantasy and coronavirus

Un confinamiento de cuentos (Stories of a lockdown), by Miguel Ángel Font Bisier, is a multimedia book accessible to everyone now available for purchase in multiple formats and platforms.

The book is an anthology of short stories written over the first three months of the Spanish COVID-19 lockdown (March – May 2020). Combining fantasy and matters of the daily life, in a fresh and humorous style, the author reflects on the COVID-19 pandemic from different angles: love, friendship, the fear of loneliness, the arts, the grief…

According to the author, a story is:

a miniature in text form that, I have discovered, works best when the audience takes part. When they use their own voice, like a good meal feels incomplete without the following conversation.

One might even say that a story is much more than a literary work. It is an exercise of communication, dialogue and constant learning. For that reason, when the Spanish Government declared the state of alarm on March 14, I thought about the value of stories and tales, as they can be a balm to the loss of freedom.

COVID-19 has made an impact on each and every one of the pillars upon which the welfare state was built.

Inclusive Cinema Culture is a right, not a privilege

Inclusive Cinema Culture is a right not a privilege

It is essential to recognize that culture is not just about the information or stimulus we receive daily. Culture and knowledge make us grow. They strengthen our character and our identity as individuals.

Fortunately, society tends to be more inclusive. A political commitment has been made in Spain so that all public products, goods, and services are accessible. This commitment also includes artistic displays, spaces, and cultural events. Therefore, there has been an increase in productions that present audio-described content, with accessible subtitling and sign language.
