The Forum allows people to network with an inspirational group of people who all share a common ambition of preserving and celebrating the languages of your country.

2017 looks set to be the year where the light shines on our languages, with the theme 'Our Languages Matter' to take centre stage for our National NAIDOC celebrations. NAIDOC week will be emphasising and celebrating the uniqueness and importance that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages play in our cultural identity.
