The first National Indigenous Languages Convention will be held on the Gold Coast on 23 February 2018.
The Convention will bring people together to develop a shared understanding of the issues faced by those working to protect, preserve and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages, and facilitate a collaborative approach to the work going on around the nation. It will also be an opportunity to showcase and experience a range of digital technologies that can be used to support the capture and learning of languages.
The Convention is part of the Government’s $10 million election commitment over four years to protect, preserve and celebrate Indigenous languages.
The Public Galleries Association of Victoria (PGAV) acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi-Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation as the Traditional Owners of the lands where our office is located, and all Traditional Owners of country throughout Victoria and Australia. We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples enduring traditions and continuing creative cultures. We pay our respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
