What is it?
A language festival is a cultural and educational event held by Esperanto organizations in different countries of the world. The purpose of language festivals is to provide information about as many different languages of the world as possible to people who are interested in languages and show how great is the variety of languages in the world. Language festivals also try to demonstrate that all languages in the world are equally important and valuable and that there should be no “major” and “minor” languages. It is very unfair to judge a language by its number of speakers. Esperanto organisations throughout the world want to promote international communication on an equal footing and want to prevent major languages from swallowing up smaller ones. There is a motto: speak a regional language locally, a national language nationally and an international language internationally.
Who organises the festival?
The Esperanto Federation of NSW
Where will it be?
When will it be?
