The Lingotell team helps safeguard the cultural heritage of minority language communities

Lingotell is a cooperation project between Sijti Jarnge (Norway), Fryske Akademy (The Netherlands) and Pro Progessione (Hungary). It uses traditional storytelling in a modern context as an identity creator by retelling, redesigning and redefining stories.
