PULiiMA 2019 Announcement
PULiiMA 2019 is pleased to announce that the event will be held at the Darwin Convention Centre in August 2019. We are thrilled to bring the event to the Northern Territory in 2019 and very excited that the importance of the world's Indigenous languages will be highlighted as UNESCO have named 2019 the International Year of Indigenous Languages.
As stated on UNESCO's website at https://en.iyil2019.org/ the following is said:
Languages play a crucial role in the daily lives of people, not only as a tool for communication, education, social integration and development, but also as a repository for each person's unique identity, cultural history, traditions and memory. But despite their immense value, languages around the world continue to disappear at an alarming rate.
With this in mind, the United Nations declared 2019 The Year of Indigenous Languages (IY2019) in order to raise awareness of them, not only to benefit the people who speak these languages, but also for others to appreciate the important contribution they make to our world's rich cultural diversity.
The magnificent Darwin Convention Centre will be the host location for PULiiMA 2019
Please stay tuned for further information over the coming weeks
