Mongolian Cultural Heritage Event at the Immersia Festival
The Mongolian Institute held a cultural heritage event as part of a larger multicultural Immersia Festival from 1-3 December. Mongolian language was featured at a Mongolia Desk, along with other Asia and Pacific languages that are taught within the CHL.
In the Mongolia Room visitors could view a short film on Mongolian horse archery and display boards featured aspects of Mongolian cultural heritage, derived from Natasha Fijn’s fieldwork in 2019 and 2022.
During the cultural heritage event on the Saturday of the festival, the Ambassador of Mongolia’s twelve-year-old son played the Morin Khuur to the gathered audience outside the ger, while children played Mongolian games, drew and practiced Mongolian calligraphy. Inside the ger traditional Mongolian deel and felt making were on display.
