Announcing participants for the Dhá Theanga programme

We are delighted to announce participants for EVA’s Dhá Theanga programme.

The project will engage with local multi-linguists in Limerick to explore a creative mediation of the 39th EVA International biennial programme, and will result in multi-language audio responses in Nigerian Pidgin English, Catalan, Polish and Irish. Audio responses will be made available through EVA’s website in November 2020.
