Mother Tongues Festival 2019

After the resounding success of our first edition, we are glad to announce that the Mother Tongues Festival 2019 will take place on 22nd-23rd February 2019 and it will be a celebration of Ireland’s linguistic diversity, with performances and workshops in many different languages. The festival will cater for all ages.

We are now accepting expressions of interest from musicians, writers, storytellers, actors and other performers.
Performances and/or workshops can be in any language spoken in Ireland, but priority will be given to languages other than English.
Performers should be based in Ireland.
Deadline for submissions is 6th April.
Our Festival committee will review expressions of interest and will invite selected artists to submit a full proposal in August.
