Women: Struggles, Fights, Empowerment.

Celebrating the rich cultures of languages in Europe and beyond. Today we present our visit at the Sprachenfest 2021 which took place at the 24th of September in Graz.

We talked to organisations involved in language education, promoting culture, competences and political empowerment of refugees, migrants or ex-pads.

The Sprachenfest is organised by the Sprachennetzwerk Graz and we have been invited to highlight the importance of living cultures and languages. This year the 20th anniversary of the European Day of Languages was celebrated.

But now let’s jump into the festival. Peninah and Saif took the microphones and went through the location talking to the different organisations.

Listen to the first of two shows from the Sprachenfest Graz.

Today we will meet the Migrants Advisory Board, Artikel-VII-Kulturverein für Steiermark, European Centre of Modern Languages, Europäisches Sprachenkompetenz Zentrum, Deutsch in Graz and the Department of Translation Studies at the University of Graz.

We are people who are commonly called migrants and asylum seekers. We want to cross borders set by definitions and get in dialogue with communities, politics, the economy, social and cultural life.

The project informs citizens that migration is a complex, multidimensional phenomenon and a political issue that requires efforts and concrete actions by people and organisations/networks at all levels of society.
