What is CLC? A Social, Cultural and Linguistic Hub that brings together people, both adults and children, and different organisations within the North West of England with the intention to support and encourage a sense of belonging, cultural identity, heart-centered communication and community harmony in our area. The CLC Social provides an opportunity for families to have a fun evening out that offers something for everyone. We open this possibility for everyone to share their heritage, culture, dance, customs, interests linked with the country they come from like cooking, photography, painting, poetry, books, travel, history, archaelogy, architecture, cinema, films … The variety of subjects is immense. Let’s celebrate our roots and the richness we bring into this world and the community we live in. In the future, we would welcome professional artists and community groups, static displays of cultural interest and information from major service providers as well as diverse food stalls, and activities for the young and young-at-heart.
the CLC Social brings a colourful and exciting programme to bring people together, to celebrate diversity, multilingualism and love for connection and communication within our community and all over the world, starting on Thursday 25 September, honouring the European Day of Languages taking place on 26 September .
WHY getting involved with the CLC Initiative?
- provides an entertaining evening out;
- provides opportunities to try new foods and activities;
- creates a sense of belonging to a diverse and interesting community; and
- gives our community a chance to showcase their cultural, culinary and linguistic heritage.
