Language.  25/05/2022

Last Wednesday, director of Institut Ramon Llull Pere Almeda attended a meeting in Galicia with president of the Consello de la Cultura Galega Rosario Álvarez, director of the Etxepare Euskal Institutua Irene Larraza, and the chief of staff from the Instituto Cervantes Martín López-Vega, in order to address the state of official languages and culture, as well as promoting joint actions.

The meeting took place at the headquarters of the Consello de la Cultura Galega, in Santiago de Compostela. Among other actions, it was decided to conduct a biannual report on the situation of the corresponding languages, which must allow making a diagnosis with data and indicators analysing their evolution. Above all, the report focuses on the formulation of proposals and policies to achieve the highest recognition and promotion of all languages. Moreover, it has been agreed to promote actions that give visibility to Basque, Galician and Catalan contemporary cultural creation, both on a State level and internationally. There have also been advances within other initiatives to facilitate the translation and publishing of contemporary literature in the various official languages.

In 2020, these institutions agreed to participate in joint actions to promote linguistic diversity and cultural plurality. Among the precedents of the agreement are programmes of literary exchange such as the project Poetas itinerantes, which allowed the mobility of poets between Galicia, Catalonia and the Basque Country.

The meeting also brought the issue of claiming the European funds PERTE, aimed at taking into consideration the multicultural and multilingual reality of the Spanish State within areas such as artificial intelligence, translation, education, cultural dissemination, audio-visual production, and research and science.
