Storytelling is the best way to keep up a language and dream of faraway lands and magical places…in your mother tongue! Mother Tongues has been organising storytelling sessions in different languages since 2017.

Our Language Adventures project in collaboration with Dolphin’s Barn Library was awarded the Dublin Bus Community Spirit Award in 2018.

During Social Inclusion week 2020 we produced a video series of Youruba bedtime stories in collaboration with artist Zeenie Summers

Storytelling is also a key activity at our annual Mother Tongues Festival, which has hosted sessions in French, Polish, Japanese, Mandarin, just to name a few!
