Linz is diverse. Far more than 100 lan­guages are spo­ken here. The inter­cul­tur­al project SPEAK DATING, ini­ti­at­ed by migrare and qujOchÖ, makes this mul­ti­lin­gual­ism vis­i­ble. Numer­ous cit­i­zens of Linz start­ed a jour­ney to unter­stand a mul­ti­lin­gual text with the help of lit­er­ary ren­dezvous. A sto­ry by Thomas Baum with an open end invit­ed peo­ple to con­quer the hearts of a jury with an own version.

Now the project finds it end. The texts are trans­lat­ed and numer­ous ends have been writ­ten. There­fore we would like to open the speak trea­sure chest togeth­er and invite every­one to the clos­ing event of SPEAK DATING.

Beside a keynote speech on “mul­ti­lin­gual­ism and expe­ri­ence of lan­guage” by Judith Purkarthofer from the Insti­tute for Lin­guis­tic Sci­ence at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Vien­na Thomas Baum awaits you togeth­er with the authors of SPEAK DATING who will present their ver­sions of ends of the text in their first lan­guage. Fur­ther­more a spe­cial­ly pro­duced song of mul­ti­lin­gual­ism will be pre­sent­ed by hip hop artists out of the Tex­ta- and Tuesday-Classics-cosmos.
