This Easter weekend it’s finally time for a new part of Lân fan taal to be officially opened in the Prinsentuin of Leeuwarden! Then, everybody will be able to enjoy the Language Garden with the two new pavilions ‘MeM-Livingroom of Languages‘ (run by Afûk/BUOG) and pavilion ‘Liwwadders‘ (run by Historisch Centrum Leeuwarden and partner DNALWD2018).

Our language and our city, both are well known to us. We know the words, sentences and questions, and we know the streets, the sounds, the crowds and the people. Or do we? Join us on the ‘Taaltoer’ / Language Tour. Discover that language does not speak for itself, and that it has some odd […]
A brand new building forms the entrance to Lân fan taal: Obe. You will be welcomed here as a new “resident” and you can immediately (and playfully) get to work with language. Experience the art installation by Tim Etchells and find out what else there is to do!
From 31st of March to 28to of October 2018, the Prinsentuin in Leeuwarden will be transformed into the Language Garden, full of adventures for children from 0 to 12 years, their older brothers/sisters and their parents/grandparents. Playground features, interactive installations, exciting routes: there’s plenty to do for families and school classes!
From the end of 2017, billboards written and designed by children will appear in Leeuwarden. They are the result of “Taal yn Byld”, a project by NHL University of Applied Sciences and seven primary schools: : IKC Aventurijn, obs Eestroom, IKC de Kinderkoepel, obs De Plataanschool, cbs Prins Mauritsschool, IKC Trianova and cbs Willem Alexanderschool.
In Leeuwarden, a gigantic “Goldberg machine” that has never been seen before will be constructed: an energetic chain reaction of installations and human actions. It will wind through the city in a figure-of-eight shaped route. And you can actively contribute, either as a resident or visitor!
