Spoken: Celebrating QLD Languages
Spoken: Celebrating Queensland Languages
A thought-provoking exhibition, brought to you by State Library of Queensland, about the survival and revival of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages.
Over 125 Queensland languages were once spoken, now approximately 50 of these remain spoken daily.
Join the journey of six Queensland communities saving their traditional languages.
Spoken presents an alternative retelling of the prevailing colonial narrative – placing rare historical records alongside the inspiring work of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities who tell their own language stories through art, song and creativity.
