More about our amazing lineup of trainers, presenters and exhibitors which have all come together to be a part of this as we all celebrate this International Year of Indigenous Languages:


We will also continue to update our information pages to assist you in organising your arrangements in getting to Darwin including accomodation options. It will be an exciting time to be in Darwin in August with also the Darwin Festival happening for those that wish to explore what it offers outside of Puliima, so we very much encourage people to book accomodation sooner rather than later. Some discounted accomodation options here.

The Puliima team are always contactable to answer any questions and provide as much support as possible to assist you, please do not hesitate to contact us.

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.
