International Mother Language Day (IMLD) celebration

Join a walk across Kings Avenue Bridge to celebrate the many languages spoken in Canberra and to promote the value of multilingualism. 

Hear a recital of music from around the world ringing out from the National Carillion from 11am to 12 noon, accompanied by songs in various languages performed by Tobias Cole and his choral group from Lyneham High School. 
  • Meet at the International Flags Display behind Questacon at 10.30am Sunday 24 February
  • Bring a banner or wear something to indicate the language with which you or your family identify
The walk will end near the National Police Memorial in Kings Park, where you can enjoy a picnic or sausage sizzle and continue this celebration of International Mother Language Day (21 February) and the International Year of Indigenous Languages
