Free Multilingual Evenings: a series of events at Volcano Theatre about languages and creativity; migrations, imaginations, translations; communities and politics. Each evening features guest authors as well as local poets, songwriters, and other word-artists, who all cross language barriers in their work.
The series is part of the Cross-Language Dynamics research project at Swansea University’s Department of Languages, Translation and Interpreting. The project is funded under the AHRC Open World Research Initiative, which supports innovative approaches to studying and researching Languages.
Free Volcano Fridays is organised in collaboration with the writers’ organisation Wales PEN Cymru, which is part of the global network of PEN International, championing freedom of expression, literacy and language rights worldwide.
