Multi-lingual Rock n Rhyme and Storytime

Launceston LINC and Migrant Resource Centre

After its 2012 packed out debut, the Launceston LINC’s ever popular baby and toddler program Rock & Rhyme and Storytime take up residence in the magical space of The Junc Room. For 2013, Junction brings together LINC Tasmania in collaboration with the Migrant Resource Centre to create a cross-cultural event.

Rock & Rhyme and Storytime transform and celebrate songs, rhymes and stories in English incorporating diverse cultures and languages of recent refugees and new migrants to our Launceston community from Bosnia, Bhutan, Burma, Nepal and African communities including Sierra Leone, Sudan and elsewhere.

The performance is an interactive session for parents and carers and their babies and pre-schoolers, and includes songs, nursery rhymes, stories, musical instruments and lots of actions.
