The Bangladesh Association of Glasgow invite you to BHASHA, the Glasgow Language Festival. The festival celebrates International Mother Language Day and its roots in the Language Martyrs Day of Bangladesh; remembering those people who, in 1952, made the ultimate sacrifice for the right to speak in their Mother Tongue.
This annual event hopes to bring together different language speaking communities of Glasgow and Scotland through sharing their poetry, literature and performance. The exchange of ideas will educate, inspire and create a more cohesive and enlightened society.
BHASHA has been recognised as one of the programmes of UNESCO’s Year of Indigenous Languages 2019.
