POLIGLOTÍA: Presentation + Estudios Políglotas Group + Dreamer Strings&Doudou Nganga
The POLIGLOTÍA programme is a creative, multidisciplinary process arising from the diversity of languages and cultural practices that exist in the city of Valencia. To that effect, we experiment with language as an energising tool, along with other forms of doing, feeling and communicating.
At this opening session, we will present the POLIGLOTÍA programme with an activity that has been energised by the participants of the Estudios Políglotas Group*. They will outline the different open processes that describe the choices offered by multilingualism as a method for creating together, playing with diversity and making oneself understood. To close, there is a concert by the Spanish-Congolese duo Dreamer Strings&Doudou Nganga, a fusion of instrumental music with Central African rhythms.
The POLIGLOTÍA programme takes place from November 2021 to May 2022 and includes various activities and creative processes promoted, from a cultural and linguistic perspective, by meetings at the museum. The programme is coordinated by Paco Inclán, writer and Spanish teacher for migrants and refugees, in collaboration with the activities and education department at IVAM (Valencia Institute of Modern Art).
