Intercultural quality time at the library

Our new semester of Kakó Lingua has officially begun with our first event taking place yesterday in the library in Kringlan.

multilingual cosy afternoon spent together crafting and decorating old glass jars and transforming them into beautiful lanters to bring home. We had many participants and a wide range of languages spoken at the tables including Spanish, Hungarian, Albanian, Chinese, Icelandic and Danish! We spotted many grown-ups having fun crafting too, with or without their children, and we all enjoyed keeping our hands busy while chatting.

Kakó Lingua events focus on spending intercultural and inter-generational quality time together to foster a better understanding between parents and children. Using visual co-creation and different languages in a friendly and inspiring environment, we will utilize each others skills and connect using communication beyond language. The events all take place at The Reykjavík City Library Kringlan, all supplies are provided and participation is free.
Last, but not least, there is always kakó (hot cocoa) on offer and a multilingual music playlist as our backdrop.

Join us next time!
