Our Voice in the World Festival

The Festival

Join us for a series of talks, discussion panels and performances to celebrate the vitality of the Welsh language among the family of global languages as part of the UNESCO International Year for Indigenous Languages 2019.

Discussion topics will include the following matters, with a focus on exploring experience from Wales and other countries:

  • language learning and use
  • language, literature, the arts and media
  • language policy and planning

The event is aimed at practitioners from a variety of fields – from within Wales and internationally.

Both Welsh and English will be used to different degrees in the Festival.  If you are not proficient in both Welsh and English, please let us know when booking so that we can arrange translation services for different sessions.
