21st February       

International Mother Language Day

On this date, the International Mother Language Day, declared by UNESCO for the promotion of cultural diversity, has been celebrated for 20 years. At the initiative of the Bulgarian-Turkish Literary Club, a multilingual competition will be held, which will be attended by representatives of different communities in the city, students from high schools and foreign students from Plovdiv universities. The event is part of the Cultural Calendar of the city and is supported by the Consul Club in Plovdiv.

The highlight of the evening is the movie "On the Trails of Glagolitic", filmed specifically for the event. This year marks the 1165th anniversary of the creation of the Slavic script and the 40th anniversary of the proclamation of the Holy Brothers Cyril and Methodius as Co-patrons of Europe by Pope John Paul II.

The idea of ​​the holiday is to emphasize the well-deserved role of all languages ​​in building cultural identity and creativity.

Again, we invite small and large to assist in the work of Baba Marta and to please their relatives, instead of buying martenitsi, make unlimited martenitsi and buy them for a minimum donation of 5lv. All interested will have at their disposal materials for making martenitsi provided by us. To make the participants feel at home, we will be in slippers and pajamas and any child and parent participating in the workshops may also come in pajamas and slippers.

Workshops will be held on February 22 and 23, and during the workshops, there will be a donation box for anyone who wants to participate or just help with the cause. The specially trained therapist for sick children, dog Mon, will help and delight all volunteers in this initiative!
