The Future of Kristang: Dreams and Awakenings

Moderator: Fuad Johari

What is going to happen to Kristang in the near future? Are children learning it? What can you do to get involved? Sara Santa Maria, teacher of Kristang in the Portuguese Settlement in Malacca, Kevin Martens Wong from the Kodrah Kristang revitalisation initiative in Singapore, and Elisabela Larrea, researcher of Macanese Creole theatre, will talk about linguistic revitalisation and how they are reviving Kristang in Singapore and Malaysia, and Maquísta in Macau.
