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.
