The radio that heals

Through the Radiarte initiative, Florence and many young people with disabilities have the opportunity to improve their lives. We tell you what it is.

Stories of people

Communication breaks barriers, creates ties: heals. We are social beings, and sharing is where we find happiness, where we feel realized.   Radio  — a medium of communication that is already old, but still in force — becomes a form of    inclusion thanks to the project  Radiarte . Today we want to tell you how Florence's life changed.

 Florence is 27 years old and suffers from cerebral palsy . Four years ago, her life was very different from other girls her age. However, thanks to his participation in a radio program, he improved his  speech , learned to manage himself and relate to people his age.

Florencia lives in Morón, in the west of Greater Buenos Aires, with his mother Maria. Every Saturday he  travels alone  to  Palermo , where he participates in the program  Words en Conjunto . There he does everything: drive, coordinate, ask, act. All that helped her to express herself better, to relate better with people, to gain   self-esteem  and autonomy. 

What is Radiarte about?

 Radiarte is an innovative  social inclusion  project for young people with motor and intellectual disabilities. These are three online broadcasts:  Words in Conjunto ,  Radio in Construction and  Aire Afternoon , in which 30 people between 18 and 45 years of age participate who work as drivers, columnists, broadcasters, mobileros, air coordinators and radio theater actors.

 Matías Nirenberg , communicator, is the creator and coordinator of this   initiative  that began in 2002. Through different resources, it helps project participants to address different situations by strengthening language and communication. Signs, for example, are a fundamental resource in this process, as they help to order and moderate while on air.

The achievements that young people get on radio then move to other areas of their lives. They feel safer, more confidently, gain autonomy, self-esteem and  communication skills. And, for them, that's all a lot.

 The radio, once again, doing magic.
