Kristang Language Festival ('Festa di Papia Kristang')
By Kodrah Kristang Follow | Public

Kristang is the critically-endangered heritage language of the Portuguese-Eurasian community in Singapore, with less than 100 elderly fluent speakers today. The 1st Kristang Language Festival aims to raise the profile and limited awareness of the vibrant Portuguese-Eurasian community in Singapore. We're bringing together people from different ethnic groups, backgrounds, age groups, and identities though an exciting line up of events during the first ever Kristang Language Festival. Open to all!
