Fabra fòrum (2019)
Throughout 2019, Fundació Vincle participated in the celebration of the Any Fabra, which began in 2018 and lasted through 2019. The activities included collaborating on the documentary Fabra, diccionari d’un home sense biografia, broadcast by TV3 on 23 April 2019 with great success among TV viewers and preparations for the Fabra fòrumber of 2019 with aim of disseminating Fabra’s civic dedication. The documentary was also screened during the Fabra Fòrum, and the monologue Pompeu Fabra: jugada mestre! was interpreted by the actor Òscar Intente. Finally, the audience were able to ask questions and engage in a discussion about the linguist and language activist.
Fundació Vincle collaborated on the study Estudi sobre els usos lingüístics a les oficines notarials de Catalunya [Study on the use of languages in notary offices in Catalonia], published by Plataforma per la Llengua. The study, which was presented on Tuesday, 8 May 2018, and which received support from the Generalitat de Catalunya, is the result of research that investigated the spoken and written uses of the Catalan language based on a sample of clients of notary services. By way of surveys containing open- and closed-ended questions, the study classified the possible causes behind the limited use of the Catalan language demonstrated by the statistics on notarial documents.

A bilingual guide (in Spanish and Catalan) that presents the reasons and considerations that have led new Catalan speakers – people who are not native speakers of Catalan but have adopted it in their day-to-day lives – to feel like the Catalan language also belongs to them. It is an excellent document, written by Josep-Anton Fernàndez, Puri Pinto, and Carmen Pérez, full of resources to help new potential speakers dive in, get past their embarrassment, and gain confidence in speaking the language. The guide’s Foreword was written by the journalist and businessman Justo Molinero. It was published by Fundació Vincle and Plataforma per la Llengua.
