DISCOUNT OFFER TO SEE TROY KINGI

PULIiMA 2019 delegates also receive a discount to see Troy Kingi perform at part of the Darwin Festival.

After the backyard blues and psychedelic sci-fi soul of his first two albums, Māori actor and musician Troy Kingi heads across the ditch with a swag of awards and a new record on the way. Expect a hard-hitting early roots reggae sound and powerful lyrics that focus on issues affecting the world’s Indigenous peoples. Kingi will be a recognisable face for those who saw The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, but onstage with a guitar in his hand he’s sure to cast a spell over music lovers.

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 the United Nations have named 2019 the International Year of Indigenous Languages.

As stated on official IYIL website 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.
