THE ENDANGERED ALPHABETS PROJECT
We’ve all heard about endangered species. But what about endangered languages? Tim Brookes researches languages on the brink of being completely forgotten, and he’s here to break ‘em down and store ‘em up with his Endangered Alphabets project. Brookes carves and paints near-extinct writing systems from Indonesia, Nigeria, and beyond into wood, and he’s planning a traveling exhibition to preserve these scripts and the fascinating cultures they embody.
The Endangered Alphabets Project needs invites for a Vermont professor traveling the world to attempt to save endangered languages... Please help.
