  • WHEN: 23-25 August 2023
  • WHERE: Darwin Convention Centre (in meeting rooms and auditorium) 
  • WHO: Your primary audience is Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from across Australia and the islands who are involved in language work in a variety of capacities. Many delegates work at the grass roots community level whilst others represent local, state and national bodies.


WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

Innovation will be a strong focus for Puliima as will the role language plays in managing country, the environment and how language underpins all aspects of our culture and identity. We are looking for presentations that create enthusiasm and pride, empower the audience, raise awareness as well as those that provide a practical transfer of skills. 

It is in our delegates best interest to not only hear about what other language communities are doing but to walk away with ideas and practical solutions for their work. Sessions that involve audience interaction are welcome.

The conference agenda will be organised broadly around the following topic streams:

  • Technology
  • Innovation
  • Community
  • Language and the environment
  • Learning and sharing


ABOUT PRESENTERS

  • Panel discussions and themes will be encouraged
  • Where a presentation is being delivered by a non-Indigenous person we encourage you consider partnering with an Indigenous person
  • We welcome participation from international presenters
  • We encourage previous presenters to participate again.

PRESENATION OPTIONS

  • PLENARY - Duration: 45 minutes total (NOTE: there may be 30min plenaries)
  • BREAK-OUT - Duration: 30 minutes total

TECHNOLOGY & PROMOTION

  • Computer and audio visual equipment will be available
  • May be either video or audio recorded for posterity and also for sharing in some form after the event.
  • We may use social media forms or our own Puliima website for viewing (if you have concerns with this please let us know beforehand)

 

We do require that all presenters register. As a presenter, you will be able to access a reduced rate ($TBA) which includes attendence for all conference sessions, evening events and catering over these three days.
