Understanding our Multilingual World: Being Human Festival, 17-25 November 2017

17 November 2017 — 25 November 2017

Belfast, Cambridge, Edinburgh and Nottingham

Photo exhibitions in Belfast, Cambridge, Edinburgh and Nottingham

In November, we will host a community network event in each of MEITS’ four partner cities, where photographic contributions from individuals across the country will be exhibited. These photographs will display what multilingualism means to different people and their communities, and how it this can be represented visually. At these exhibition events, we will invite people to think about multilingualism, and how visible/invisible it is in their urban environment.

In each city, a member of the MEITS team will give a brief presentation on themes and messages that have emerged from the photographic contributions, and how they connect with MEITS’ aims. We will also welcome contributors themselves to attend these events where possible, in order for them to answer questions about their work, as a way of encouraging understanding and engagement among different individuals in these locales. All photographs will be accompanied by a brief blurb explaining their significance.

Please contact Angela Gayton, Deirdre Dunlevy or Anne-Hélène Halbout for more details, or go to the Being Human Festival website.
