Bumps, Breakthroughs & Bloopers!

MAVLI will be hosting,
“Bumps, Breakthroughs & Bloopers!”

at Sam’s Place on April 13th, 2017 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm.

No matter if you are an AEIP student, recent grad or seasoned interpreter, we are all on a journey of continual learning.  We all encounter bumps in the road, have those moments of breakthroughs and have those interpreting bloopers (be they unpredicted mishaps or just old fashioned mis-interpretations)!

Please join us in celebrating successes, bonding over our common challenges and hopefully laughing at our bloopers. We’d all love to hear your experiences and stories!  The great thing about being a part of our ASL-English interpreting community is that you are never alone.

We look forward to an evening of coffee/tea and stimulating conversation!

Settler Society Interpreters in First Nations, Metis and Inuit Settings

Invitation for Discussion

Thank you Darla Stewart for being the first contributor of our MAVLI 2017 Newsletter.

This article discusses the privilege interpreters have and how to navigate First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Settings. What can I do with all this privilege?  How can I work with people, particularly the First Peoples of Canada, in respectful and empowering ways?  How can I show that my consumer’s culture is valued and important in my interpreting process and decisions?
