The 2018 Western and Northern Aboriginal Languages Alliance Forum will be held at Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education’s Batchelor Campus and the Wadeye Community from the 15th to the 19th October 2018.

The theme for this year’s forum is ‘The Language of Art & The Art of Language’. Participants choose from workshop streams including traditional and new communication methods, story telling, on-country documentation  through mapping  stories, language and visual arts, and sustainable management of language centres and language archives.

WANALA represents 15 language organisations across WA and the NT .  This forum brings them together to learn new communication, documentation, narrative and language skills in a supportive environment. WANALA also extends an invitation to other Language Centres across Australia to participate in the forum to share and learn new skills for language revival and maintainance.
