Language learning, modern arts and intercultural dialogue
EDUCULT Institute for Cultural Policy and Management and The British Council Vienna cordially invite you to the event “Language Rich Europe – Language Rich Arts ” on 19 November 2010.
This lecture and discussion panel will be the first awareness-raising event for the “Language Rich Europe” Project. In the framework of this project experts from 14 EU countries will share good practices in language teaching and learning for social inclusion and intercultural dialogue and cooperate on improving language policies and practices.
You meet different ways to learn languages or develop any interest in languages, if you step out of the classroom. Languages have links to various art forms such as music, literature, and the performing and visual arts. The lecture by Florian Cramer will open up a different perspective and a fascinating approach to new ways regarding the diversity of languages and their important role in intercultural dialogue. The discussion panel with experts from different fields will lead to an in-depth discussion of language policy and good practices.
The event will take place at the Vienna Book Fair 2010.
The discussion will be in English.
