Event description

Description

Featuring: David Astle, Kylie Bracknell and Kim Scott

Facilitated by: Daniel Midgley

Australia is incredibly linguistically diverse yet faces a great decline in traditional language preservation and literacy avenues for migrant communities. The discourse around language maintenance, appropriation, translation and re-awakening technology can feel like a mine field, but is it really that complicated? Four speakers share their insights into how we can and why we should keep language alive.
