On Thursday 8 June 2023 SCILT hosted the Multilingual approaches through Art - online exhibition launch event. The event provided the opportunity to hear from pupils, teachers and partners who participated in the project.
The launch commenced with opening remarks from SCILT and CISS Director Fhiona Mackay. Professor Antonella Sorace, Founder of Bilingualism Matters, spoke about the multilingual approach behind the project, and we heard from project partners Dr Lavinia Hirsu from the University of Glasgow, and Jane Catlin from the University of Strathclyde.
Attendees then had the chance to hear from participating teachers about their experience taking part in the project. Teachers from Antonine Primary, Bowhouse Primary, Bun-sgoil Ghàidhlig Loch Abar, Mile End School, St Maria Goretti Primary, and Williamston Primary provided written or recorded feedback, and you can view their comments in the video below.
Participants were then treated to a viewing of the exhibition launch video, an inspiring showcase of pupils' artwork highlighting their creativity and linguistic skills.
Finally the online exhibition was unveiled on the SCILT website, where all submitted artwork is available to view.
