February 21st is International Mother Language Day, as proclaimed by UNESCO, a day to remember that we must promote the preservation and protection of all languages used by people of the world. A task that SOHL does daily with our mission: Keeping Languages Alive.
This year we will be celebrating early on Saturday, February 11th, 2017 to bring in the celebrations with music, dance, and friendship. The day will be hosted at the Campbell Collegiate Currie Auditorium which can host a large audience, so remember to spread the word! The event will be from 1:00-4:00pm on the Saturday afternoon, with reception to follow.
Below is a message for any cultural performance groups, we encourage you to pass on the message!
As always we are looking for cultural groups to perform at the event; these groups can have focus of dance, singing, instrumental music, or all of the above! Attached to this email you will find a Performance Application, which is due January, 20, 2017! When filling out an application, please keep the performance within 10 minutes (these 10 minutes you can divide as you like to accommodate your performance). These cultural groups do not need to be professional, we encourage you to submit applications for any art groups from your language schools! Application available here.
If you have any questions about the application or the day of the event, please contact Chloe via phone or email.
