A multicultural Community

Grisons/ Graubünden is not only the canton of 150 valleys but also the canton of different cultures and languages. At the spring fair Higa from 21 to 29 March in Chur, there is a multicultural residential community (Wohngemeinschaft) of different languages and cultures.

It is the first joint public presentation of four organisations: the Romansh Association (la Lia Rumantscha, founded in 1919), the Association for Italian Graubünden (l’associazone Pro Grigioni Italiano, founded in 1918), the Walservereinigung (l’associazione Walser Grigioni, founded in 1960) and the Association Pro Raetia (founded in 1949).

These organisations present themselves as a residential community with a Romansh, Italian, Walser and Pro Raetia space. (Further information: www. higa.ch/sonderschauen/sonderschau-sprachen).
