Overview

Leicester is known for its diversity and its multiculturalism, but our focus is on its linguistic diversity and what this means to the city and its people.

  • Which languages are spoken in Leicester?
  • How do people feel about their multilingual background?
  • How do parents experience raising their children with two languages or more?
  • Is it important to have access to heritage languages in schools and how do schools deal with students’ linguistic diversity?

These are some of the key questions we will address with a panel of expert speakers and a Q&A session.

Speakers:

  • Martín Agnone, Coordinator of Languages at Leicester programme
  • Haseeb Ahmad, Equality and Diversity Lead, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS
  • Marina Charalampidi, Head of the Greek Supplementary School in Leicester

The free event takes place during the Leicester Human Rights Arts and Film Festival and is open to all.
