Language for Resilience Exhibition

11th March – 29th March
Library Building, University of Reading

In partnership with the University of Reading, the British Council is bringing the Language for Resilience Exhibition to Reading. Across the world millions of people have been displaced from their homes by conflict and civil unrest. Many of those displaced find themselves far from home, separated from family members and social support without the language skills they need for even basic communication and access to essential services.

Education and career opportunities for both children and adults have been severely disrupted, or halted. Language learning is absolutely essential. It helps refugees and their host communities to withstand challenges, to recover from crisis, to overcome barriers – to build resilience.

The exhibition is free and is open to the public.
