On Thursday and Friday 17th and 18th June, as part of the Queensland Indigenous Languages Project, the State Library's Heritage Collecitons Unit hosted a 'Discovery Research Workshop' in the John Oxley Library Reading Room.
This event was aimed at language workers and community members who are currently working, or have an interest in traditional languages and supporting language revival programs in communities.
Language groups being researched on the day included Kamilaroi/Bigambul, Gwamu, Yugumbeh, Jagera, Bindal, Wulgurukaba, Mbarbaram/Kukudjungan, Miriiam Mer, Jandawal, Kabi Kabi, Yidinji, Djabugay, Irugandji, Dyirbal, Mamu, Ngadjon, Garrwa, Cobble Cobble, Barrungam, and Wakka Wakka.
Thanks to our participants for coming from different parts of Queensland and the State Library's Des Crump and Chrissi Theodosiou for the hard work put into organising this valuable workshop.
