«Just as happened after the 2010 earthquake, today radio is reinvigorated again, to have an important place within this process of confinement to be able to face the coronavirus in Chile and the world, and it is also an opportunity to bring the radio closer, and particularly the radioteatros, to those who cannot access the technologies, they cannot afford them , or also older people who do not know how to make use of these technologies,» says Raúl Rodríguez, journalist and academic at the University of Chile and one of the filmmakers of this series of radio dramas.
«Our community government has promoted various public policies in this health emergency and the Open University of Recoleta has accompanied this process with innovative initiatives. Thinking particularly of the loneliness that many older adults are experiencing, we wanted to contribute with these contents. We are working to make radios a priority channel in the delivery of educational, social and cultural information to numerous sectors of our commune and throughout the country,» says Alicia Sánchez, head of Institutional Relations of the UAR.
