<p> In a <strong>pluricultural</strong> and <strong>multilingual </strong> world, children, at their earliest years, are surrounded by a multitude of languages. Yet, as the kids grow up, all those <strong>shapes</strong> and <strong>sounds</strong> lose their <strong>meaning</strong>. </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Visuels-1460757679" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/304919/visuels-1460757679.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> That’s why <strong>“m.o.t.s”</strong> grew out of the desire of its designer to highlight the importance of those languages that are, sometimes, left behind. Moreover, <strong>“m.o.t.s”</strong> is an educational project aiming to make children <strong>aware</strong> of the variety of <strong>languages</strong> and <strong>cultures</strong> present in the world through <strong>games</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Visuels_2-1460758336" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/304921/visuels_2-1460758336.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> The kit is composed of a set of <strong>polyglot objects</strong>:</p> <p>  </p> <p> _A <strong>puzzle</strong> made of words and patterns.</p> <p> _An animal <strong>poster</strong>.</p> <p> _A r<strong>ecord</strong> of lullabies from the children’s cultural legacy.</p> <p> _An extract from the <strong>UN’s Declaration of the Children Rights</strong> (Child-Friendly language, official text).</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Visuels_3-1460758535" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/304922/visuels_3-1460758535.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> A first arbitrary selection of tongues was made, based on statistics corresponding to the first 16 languages spoken in France next to French. The project is intended to open up to more languages and cultures to better represent the <strong>plurality of our world</strong>.</p> <p> French and Dutch are part of this project since it was contextualised in a French school and presented as the designer’s diploma in the Netherlands.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Visuel_new-1460826755" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/305090/visuel_new-1460826755.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> Therefore, this is with your support that <strong>“m.o.t.s”</strong> will be materialised in <u>Bobigny’s preschool Marcel Cachin</u> and later be presented (if the diploma succeeds) during the <u>2016’s Dutch Design Week</u> at the Design Academy Eindhoven (Netherlands). Therefore, this project will grow, evolve and gain experience from you, the children, the parents and the teachers. Moreover, it might even reach out to other schools and children from France or beyond. </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Each and Everyone rewarded from its cultural wealth and the exchanges from one another.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="41110032w-1460992881" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/305773/41110032w-1460992881.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>Juliette Pépin is a student at the Design Academy Eindhoven, “m.o.t.s” is part of her graduation in “Man and communication”.</em></p>
