About the project Edit

"An adventure across the world that showcases the cultural diversity and gives everyone a voice." The Caravan of the ten words is a cultural project that focuses on the French language.
The idea is to select ten words and encourage the public to create common cultural activities to discuss these words, their possible definitions, their interpretations...
Every 2 years, the project has gives rise to an international forum.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

The forum serves to reflect on the language - bringing diverse populations together, facilitating exchange and understanding of the differences, while giving rise to a variety of artistic creations.
Today, the forum is international, which has encouraged reflection on language within the same country, but also within different communities that speak the same language (France, Belgium, Switzerland, as well as in countries from Africa or South America, Asia ...).

What is the social value of this project? Edit

This project promotes discussion and understanding of the differences within a language. The project makes it possible to bring people together and bring about in a positive way their multiple affiliations, creating a closeness between people.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

The common language used for the project is French. All of the communities that speak this language are likely to include this project. But the goal is to create a dialogue between people who speak a common language, it is also possible to adapt this project to many other languages in different countries or communities (Spanish, English, sign language...).
In addition, the Caravan of the ten words team would like in the near future to provide more space for languages represented by this project - especially during the forums.
