Making the Frisian language and multilingualism visible in public space in a playful and visual way, that is what the ‘Sichtberens’ (Frisian for visibility) project is all about!
In Fryslân we would like to show our multilingual wealth (more) in the public space. Our Frisian language in particular. The province of Fryslân plays an important role to implement the language legislation visibly. Starting in Leeuwarden.
Together with the municipality of Leeuwarden, we (Lân fan taal) have substantively supported this project. Artist Marten Winters and designer Aad van Altena have come up with a creative form to make language live with striking texts at view locations in our capital. The viewer can accidentally run into them or go into the city on a language adventure.
