At Multilingual Manchester we are celebrating International Mother Language Day 2020 with an exciting event, ‘How do you say Our Kid in Kurdish? & other questions.’

Join us at Manchester Museum for an evening of interactive games, crafts and activities, exploring the 200 languages spoken in our homes, our families and our city.

Step into our multilingual ‘shop’, label up the fruit and vegetables in your languages, find out more about the names of your clothes and get to grips with the Arabic alphabet in our new building blocks game!

Decorate your home on a big, interactive artwork celebrating Manchester’s multilingual streets and tell us what languages mean to you as part of an instant photo exhibition.

Join Q+A sessions with experts on child bilingualism and other topics, and get yourself a library card for one of Manchester’s welcoming libraries.

Most activities will be best suited to adults and older children, but younger kids are more than welcome to come along too!
