More about International Mother Language
UNESCO proclaimed February 21 as the International Mother Language Day and has been observed worldwide every year since February 2000 to promote linguistic and cultural diversity and multilingualism.
The Tri-City area enjoys a rich multicultural diversity with more than 30 different language speaking groups.
The idea of the event is to celebrate the day with a cultural program, where groups of various language speakers will commemorate their own mother language. Groups will highlight and introduce the key features their of mother language in English followed by a visual cultural performance.
This event is sponsored by the Three Rivers Folklife Society.
