Since the beginning of 2018, Lân Fan Taal has been a free state that welcomes all languages. We celebrate language with – mostly freely accessible – festivals, projections, exhibitions and activities. Lân Fan Taal is also part of the Re-Opening of LF2018, and has organised a great programme for November.
Most activities on our calendar are connected to one of our (partners) specific projects. But, there are more activities that we would like to bring to your attention in Lân fan taal. These activities you’ll find below.
