COVID-19 update: State Library is gradually reopening and more spaces are now available. Check what’s open before you visit.
A day for all creatives, educators, community workers and those who work in the GLAM sector to be part of the important conversation about the future of Indigenous language and its place as a human right, while gaining skills and tools to incorporate Indigenous language into your craft.
Coinciding with International Mother Language Day, the forum will explore ways to harness the goodwill and energy of the 2019 International Year of Indigenous Languages and pose the question of what now?
