Τhe Language Project
The Language Project is an innovative cultural initiative, a group of people, a living entity with one goal; to create a networking spot and open platform of expression for those who love languages. An [inter]-[meta]-[multi]linguistic experience based on synergies, inspired by innovation and aiming at social impact. We aim at making words meaningful and the person behind them visible; at getting translators and linguists out of their cocoons and bringing them into the spotlight, in order for them to share their passion; at using language as a co-creative tool to interact and learn; at encouraging young people to communicate in any language, regardless of whether they make mistakes.
How? By creating a network of language aficionados and by producing versatile translation-based events that promote multilingualism in Athens, Corfu, Thessaloniki and in many more cities to come. Through our collaboration with European and Greek institutions, we engage young people by making language learning and translation a co-creative, interactive and entertaining process. Workshops, an open communication platform for language lovers, participatory videos about multilingualism, translation slams, experiential guided tours, new educational methods, events and info sessions concerning linguistic professions.
We do things we Love. We Love Languages. We Love communicating, in any way we can. We speak a Lot, in any Language we can. At Least we try. We transLate reaLity through our own perspectives. We write more. We traveL even more.
Can foreign sounds, peculiar words and different cultures change the way we see the world?
