Animo and NALA (National Adult Literacy Agency) have had a long association of producing advocacy videos together. We have produced seven series for broadcast which deal with different aspects of adult literacy issues; a topic that affects a large portion of Irish society.
Written Off? was one of our most successful series, following the stories of a number of people with literacy difficulties as they attend a special live-in workshop for eight weeks.
This series was a total departure from traditional education programmes. It is a personal transformation series that focuses on the journey of each individual person. It took a fresh, and often moving, look at how some people cope cope with having to learn basic skills that many of us take for granted.
