DP210100228 Investing in Aboriginal Languages

    Project: Research

    Project Details

    Description

    We will develop the first systematic account of Aboriginal language programs and what makes them effective and sustainable. The project will create a substantial evidence base, leading to a comprehensive model of language revitalisation and how it operates in each place, and for whom. The model will show how local and national organisations can invest in Aboriginal languages, and what kinds of returns they can expect. The project involves a two-way collaboration with Aboriginal people across the country that will elevate their voices and build their capacity for designing and evaluating programs, businesses and technologies for keeping Aboriginal languages strong.
