The Living Languages PD program aims to:
increase the professional capacity of Indigenous people engaged in language work
strengthen the participants' knowledge of linguistics, language documentation, and language revitalisation methods
develop the capacity of Indigenous language activists to become trainers and share skills with other people in families, communities and workplaces, and
help to build a professional network amongst Indigenous language activists
Working with First Languages Australia, the current PD program targets young language activists and emerging language workers and teachers. You can read about this and earlier PD workshops here:
This workshop series is supported by a Professional Development grant from the Australian Governments' Indigenous Languages and Arts (ILA) program (Department of Communication and the Arts).
