A New Residency on Governors Island

For the next few months, the Endangered Language Alliance will be hosting a small residency program on Governors Island, the exciting new arts and culture hub in the middle of New York Harbor, giving space to linguists, language activists, and other creators doing related work at a challenging time. Residents will work on ongoing projects documenting and support linguistic diversity in the city, surrounded by the “Mother Tongues” portraits of endangered language speakers by photographer Yuri Marder, previously exhibited at the Queens Museum and the City Lore Gallery. We hope to be back in the future with public events when it’s safe!

If you’re in need of a unique but barebones space for language-related work or simply want to learn more, drop us a line!
