Dr Majbritt Lyck-Bowen is developing a research study on language cafés. In this Learning & Exchange event organised together with Winchester Centre of Religion, Reconciliation and Peace, Majbritt Lyck-Bowen will give us a broad understanding of what data she has collected up till now and what conclusions can be drawn to what’s useful and essential. She will present the participatory part of the project and how practitioners may be involved.

Some of our practitioners will then be given the floor and each give us short pitches on their experiences. We finish with time for questions and discussions.
