“Translating Values” is an international research project directed by two academics based in Northern Ireland, Piotr Blumczyński, Queen’s University and John Gillespie, University of Ulster.

Queen’s University and University of Ulster invite you to share your thoughts, feelings and opinions of language and culture in relaxed atmosphere, over cup of tea or coffee with refreshments with CRAIC NI

CRAIC NI is pleased to be working in partnership with North West Migrants Forum for the workshop to reach out for participants who speak English on a daily basis but English is not their first language. 

Have you come to Northern Ireland and English is not your first language? Do you speak, write, read or listen in English daily or regularly? We are looking for your assistance to explore the importance of how language and culture come together to converse,when we work, study or participate in everyday life.

The research will explore:

  • Do various cultures and religions value different things? How do they speak about them?
  • When we communicate in English rather than our native language, do we feel this affects our message – not just in terms of how we say it, but also what we say?
  • How important is our language to who we are and what we hold dear?
  • Can people and their values be translated?

The workshop is on Thursday 23rd April 2015 at the Playhouse starting from 6pm- 8pm. North West Migrants Forum is supporting CRAIC NI to deliver this project.
