Indigenous Languages Discovery Workshop

Through funding made available by the Department of Premier and Cabinet, Office of the Arts' Indigenous Language Support program the State Library's Queensland Memory Unit recently held a 3 day Indigenous Languages Discovery Workshop in the John Oxley Library Reading Room.

Des Crump leads the Indigenous Languages Discovery Workshop in the John Oxley Library Reading Room.

Visitors from Townsville, Woorabinda, Bundaberg, Stradbroke Island and the Sunshine Coast participated in the workshop facilitated by Des Crump from Monday 20 to Wednesday 23 November.

Linguist Colleen Hattersley discusses her research.

Thanks very much to Des for organising and leading the workshop and to all of our presenters and participants for their contributions. This was another great opportunity for people involved in the preservation and revival of Indigenous languages to come together, learn from each other and discover the John Oxley Library's rich array of collections documenting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language and culture.
