Leeds is bidding to become European Capital of Culture 2023 and is currently developing an inclusive, city-wide cultural programme for 2023. With over 170 languages spoken in Leeds it is important that foreign languages feature strongly in this programme and so we are asking for your creative ideas!
Join us for the workshop “Culture Meets Languages” to share your ideas with the Leeds 2023 bid team.
In this workshop, led by the Leeds 2023 Artistic Programme Coordinator Matt Burman, we will be looking at the great opportunities emerging from the use of languages in cultural programming. We are inviting language enthusiasts and cultural practitioners to feed in ideas for the Leeds 2023 artistic programming and to discuss challenges and successes of cultural programming with languages.
