Pangram is a social network for reviving and preserving minority languages
by means of collaborative and participative efforts.

Spoken word comes before literacy; yet is often the most ignored element;
the site aims to provide an intriguing audio based platform that encourages
the less fluent to engage, learn and connect with native speakers. It hopes
to bridge the gap brought about by dominating languages and prevent
languages from vanishing entirely whilst adding to a growing archive of
spoken word.

A short one minute video about the project available here

The website, still under development but can be found at Pangr.org

If you would like more information, please contact me at infopangr.org
