Francesca La Morgia, originally from Italy, has been involved in a range of community projects primarily with migrant families in Ireland and in the UK for a number of years. In 2017, she created Mother Tongues, a non-profit organisation that aims to support migrant families in raising children with two or more languages. Francesca is the curator of the Mother Tongues Festival, the only festival in Ireland that focuses on multilingualism. This conversation, with Create’s Cultural Diversity Researcher Evgeny Shtorn, encompasses Francesca’s experience as a migrant, an academic, an artist, and her motivation for establishing the Mother Tongues Festival
