The Queensland Indigenous Languages Advisory Committee and the Pama Language Centre are pleased to be hosting the 2019 Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Languages Forum to be held at the Novotel in Cairns on the 7th and 8th of May.

Registration is $160.00. To register please follow this link.
There are a limited number of free registration spaces available for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members.

The forum is being funded by the Indigenous Languages and Arts program as an opportunity for language workers across Queensland to come together, share our successes and learn from each other–to grow and inspire activities toward a future in which all Queensland language are spoken strongly and proudly.

A summary of last year’s forum is available here.

The program for the 2019 forum is currently in planning with a number of inspirational presentations and activities locked in. If you are interested in sharing your language journey, activity or resources at the event please contact Annalee Pope with the details.
