Ngara Yar-re Gna – Hear Say See

Join us this winter as we celebrate the strength and diversity of Indigenous languages in NSW with a series of displays, activities and events.

Discover how Library programs are helping to revitalise Indigenous languages. Find out about the challenges and possibilities of rebuilding living languages from written records. Play with language. Hear and see language. Learn some new language yourself. Focused around this year’s NAIDOC Week theme of ‘Our Languages Matter’, Ngara yar-re gna (pronounced nya-ra yar-ri nya) will highlight the unique language heritage and life of our city and state.
