Description

Listen to the City: an interactive journey through multilingual Cardiff

This free event offers a chance to explore the city through the eyes of our diverse population. Every day, we work out how to get along together in shops, businesses, libraries, sports grounds and on the streets. Have you ever thought about how that works? During this session, we will showcase findings from a Cardiff University research project* to consider how people talk together to persuade, teach, learn, share, entertain, relax and work.

Join us on a journey through Cardiff as it is experienced by people who share languages and those who don’t. Using photographs, recordings, interviews and observations we will ask how people get along despite, or perhaps because of, their differences. We invite you to join in the conversation.

This conversation event will link in with Quarantine and National Theatre Wales' new production: English - to discuss language and identity, as English premieres in Cardiff, 14-24 June at Wales Millennium Centre.

* the Tlang project "Translation and Translanguaging: Investigating Linguistic and Cultural Transformations in Superdiverse Wards in Four UK Cities" led by Universitity of Birmingham and Cardiff University.
