We are an education initiative that supports young people in embracing all sides of their linguistic and cultural heritages. We do this through creative translation workshops that explore issues of representation, self-expression, colonial history and the power of language.
Formal language-learning does not currently re ect the dynamic and varied lived experience of language. The focus on Western European languages and elite forms of English in the UK curriculum creates a perceived hierarchy, placing value on these languages over others.

We hosted a free festival in collaboration with the Institute of Modern Languages Research, SOAS World Languages Institute, and The Endangered Languages Archive exploring pathways towards education that is free from prejudice and discrimination.
