Hungry for mid-day community and conversation? Spend your lunch hour with us! As part of our Listening to Language series, we’ll listen to a selection of audio works recorded in multiple languages and made locally. Not a polyglot? That’s okay! We encourage you to treat your ears to the textures and tones of languages you may not be familiar with or accustomed to hearing. We’ll listen collectively and discuss the experience.

We’ll provide gripping audio, great conversation, and, of course, lunch (with veg and gluten-free options). As always, the PRX Podcast Garage is wheelchair accessible and welcomes all people, whether listener or producer, novice or expert. Tickets are $5.00 and include lunch.

ABOUT THE SERIES

Language is intrinsically connected to who we are and how we relate to one another. We express ourselves through the languages we sing in, the languages we dream in, and the stories we tell. Language holds knowledge, wisdom, and experience. When we break down language barriers, we are able to access new channels of communication and build directly with each other. This is what it means to create a multilingual space where no language is dominant and every language holds power. Join us for a Listening Lunch and Panel on Bilingual Podcasting and Multilingual Media to deepen how we listen to each other’s stories, embrace multilingual expression. All events will take place at the PRX Podcast Garage in Boston and can be found at bit.ly/listening2language
