Island Voices 2022

Giving Voice to the Land

The rich heritage of the languages of Irish and Ulster-Scots can help us see the ways in which we have, over time, lost the words and the wisdom to understand the features, forces and phenomena of the physical world.

Our indigenous languages give voice to the land, through our placenames, our names for living things and the vocabulary of our forgotten ways. They may also offer us opportunities to reconnect with the natural world, to better understand it, and to rebuild the lost relationship between us and nature.

Derry City and Strabane District Council presents Island Voices 2022 - a series of lunchtime lectures exploring the unique insight which the languages of Irish and Ulster-Scots bring to our understanding of the natural world.
