International Mastercard endorsement
About the project:
At Mastercard’s invitation, Amber Galloway Gallego, the best translator of the mimic-gesture language in the world and her team got up on the main stages of 2 of the biggest music festivals in Romania and Ukraine to interpret music for the hearing-impaired participants.
In terms of Electric Castle - Romania, this was not only a national premiere but also an international premiere, as the festival gathered the biggest crowd from this community at events of such kind.
The initiative included training programs - held by Amber - open to local sign language interpreters who were interested in building careers in music interpretation.
How did we help?
We were there from the very beginning, helping implement the initiative:
- providing consultancy in terms of the project flow and ensuring everything is going according to plan
- budgeting and contract negotiation
- reaching out to local deaf associations
- talent scouting, coordination, and on-site assistance
