San Francisco, California

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Social and Language Documentation (CIDLeS) cordially invites all the European minority language communities to participate in the Language Fair – a socio-cultural event which aims at getting the general public acquainted with linguistic diversity in Europe, mainly its endangered/minority languages (including those spoken by immigrants). Therefore, this event focuses on discussion and social, intercultural and scientific exchange between different communities that speak endangered/minority languages, on the promotion of their cultural and linguistic heritage, as well as on the presentation of modern bands that perform in their native languages.
The Language Fair will close the general event dedicated to the endangered languages in Europe which takes place in Minde and includes the International Conference on Endangered Languages in Europe (October 17th and 18th, http://www.cidles.eu/events/conference-ele-2013/) and the Endangered Languages Music Festival (October 18th and 19th).
