All of the presented activities make continuous reference to the Framework of Reference for Pluralistic Approaches to Languages and Cultures (FREPA). The exhibition is an interactive visual tool for use in schools to raise awareness of language diversity. It comprises of 7 roll-up posters, each addressing a different aspect of multilingualism and providing conceptual representations of topics ranging from etymology in everyday life to social linguistics, language change and the question of linguistic identity. The exhibition aims to overcome boundaries between single-language orientation in didactics and the divide between the prestige of “old” and “new” multilingualism in South Tyrolian schools. It has become a vital tool for both teachers and professionals whose aim is to give their pupils a chance to explore the different aspects of multilingualism with regard to research, development, values and diversity.
