Nina Baranovski, workshop host:
I am a sign language interpreter, a child of deaf parents who first learned how to use sign language and then to talk Serbian. I am currently attending master studies in defectology and I deal with interpreting and organization of training in sign language. I bring the love for sign language from my family and my mission is for as many people as possible to meet the beauty of the language and to meet the world of the deaf, their language, culture… I work on the promotion of the language with my colleague who is deaf, as well as on the creation of more available environment for deaf people and availability of the contents in the environment in which they live, but also on raising awareness among hearing population on the manner of the communication with deaf people. We have founded our association of interpreters and translators for sign language and we are first in Serbia with the license for Sign Language Teaching Program. One of the visions of our association is for the sign language to enter the education system as an elective subject.
