We are hosting a community event to launch the online archive of data collected by The Dialects of Kurdish Project. We will demonstrate the website and data archive, hear from people who took part in the project, and enjoy food and music.
Everyone is welcome to attend! Please find full details on the flyer below.
Visit the Kurdish project website.
We are offering small grants to support film production on the subject of world and community languages (priority is being given to students and recent graduates of The Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology at The University of Manchester).

Multilingual Manchester is hosting an event to celebrate International Mother Language Day. ‘Manchester Talks Many Languages’ will take place on 21 February 2017, 5.30 – 7pm, at Central Library. For further details, see the invitation below.
We would be delighted if you could join us there. To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A new Supplementary School Support Platform launched by Multilingual Manchester will assist Manchester’s community-run weekend schools that teach languages such as Polish, Arabic, Chinese, Turkish, and others. The initiative will encourage university staff and students to get involved with local supplementary schools and help in the development of audio-visual resources and learning kits as well as training. It will also help encourage parents and pupils to cultivate home languages as a valuable skill. The initiative is partly funded by a large grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council under its new Open World Research Initiative.
For further details please contact email@example.com. For information on Manchester’s supplementary schools see our report from 2015.
