Friday 6 April. 19h. Auditorio do Pazo da Cultura.
The second edition of the Youtubeir@s project is underway, boosting the creation of Youtube content in Galician language by these awards to the best videos and channels, as well as through workshops and other training activities and to make visible our language in social networks . In this meeting we will talk with some of the finalists of the first edition, such as Eira Losada or Nuria Espasandín, and we will enjoy a teaser of what we will watch as a result of the new call.
Eira Losada is a 16-year-old Ourense student passionate about the audiovisual, music and books who studies Arts Baccalaureate and runs the YouTube channel “Nubes Baixo Ti”, with which she was a finalist of the Youtubeir@s contest in its first edition of 2017.
Native of Vimianzo, Nuria has three channels on Youtube and is a finalist of the I Youtubeir@s Contest. She defines herself as ‘dependent on words and feelings’, and as an admirer of whatever format that serves to express herself and feel – finding on the audiovisual a perfect way to do it. Since a little kid she was defined by close people as ‘a defender of the poor’, which proves that, without knowing it, Law was always her vocation, being the career that she is currently about to graduate in.
