Programme opening Lân fan taal

Wednesday 24 January 2018


The first weekend of February, Lân fan taal opens. To celebrate this, there will be a free language festival. On Friday evening the premiere of ‘Foarlopich lân / Voorlopig land’ takes place, a multilingual video projection on the Oldehove. On Saturday, February 3, Tresoar will organise an open house and on Sunday, February 4, DNALWD2018 […]

A party for the deaf

Secondary program

Sign language and communication between hearing and deaf people are indispensable elements of Lân fan taal. For example, the catering facilities in Language Pavilion MEM will be run by deaf and hearing impaired persons. Will ordering a cup of coffee be as easy as “usual”? On World Deaf Day, there will be a multi-sensory experience […]

Mini festivals

Main program

Did you know that the Oldehove will become a spectacular projection screen during 2018? And that’s something to celebrate! That’s why Lân fan taal and Explore the North are organising three mini festivals in the heart of Leeuwarden. The projections are a fine excuse and source of inspiration.

Explore the North

Secondary program

Ground frost, dew on empty washing lines, frost on the window. Winter strikes hard in the historic heart of Leeuwarden. Time for a festival that warms you from the inside!

Liwwadders! Our present, past and future.

Main program

In Leeuwarden, the city dialect (Liwwadders) is spoken in addition to Frisian and many other languages. It is also the name of the floating pavilion in the canal at the edge of the Prinsentuin.

Liet XXL

Secondary program

Liet, a festival that includes a Frisian-language, musical talent contest, was founded in 1991. In 2002, Liet became international and offered a podium to bands in all lesser-known European languages from such regions as Lapland, Brittany and Asturias. And in 2018, Liet will become XXL!

Yiddish Waves

Secondary program

Bolleboos, gabber, mesjogge or kapsones: the Dutch language is full of Yiddish words. This is not surprising, because Yiddish culture is very much at home among other cultures. And that’s why this year, the theme of the Yiddish Waves festival is “Heymishkeyt”, Yiddish for “feeling at home”. This multicultural festival, where everyone is welcome, will […]

Expedition Ameland

After the storytelling festival in May, the events programmed by Expedition Ameland will continue. In the summer of 2018, you can come and listen to multilingual stories in the museums of Ameland every Wednesday afternoon. Six international storytellers found inspiration in whaler Hidde Dirks Kat’s journal from 1818. Listen, shiver, and enjoy…

De Taalkaravaan

Main program

In the summer, Lân fan taal’s Language Caravan will be travelling through Friesland, supporting existing festivals and events with a rich programme of music and other elements centred around languages. The motto of the caravan is: ‘hjir wol ik wei, hjir wol ik altyd bliuwe’ (I want to leave this place, I want to stay […]
