More about the Mother Tongue Public Artwork at Tarneit Community Learning Centre:

Wyndham City Council proudly supported the creation of the “Wyndham Mother Tongue Public Artwork”. The initial idea for creating this public artwork was instigated by the Victorian Bangladeshi Community Foundation (YBCF) to commemorate martyrs from the Bangla Language Movement on 21 February 1952 in Bangladesh.

Following discussions with the VBCF and other community stakeholders, it was agreed it was important to expand the concept of the project to one that engaged with the broad theme of the preservation of Mother Language and representation of language diversity for all cultures in Wyndham.

We are excited to invite you to celebrate “International Mother Language Day-IMLD 2023”. Victorian Bangladeshi Community Foundation (VBCF) and Wyndham City Council have been celebrating IMLD since 2017.Mother Language Day is an International day celebrating multiculturism.  Celebration of IMLD is a milestone event for all language lovers in Victoria.
