Description Apmere angkentye-kenhe | A place for language


16TH JUNE – 7TH JULY 2017

Apmere angkentye-kenhe is taking place in the old op-shop behind the Uniting Church on Todd Mall. This little shed will become an interactive space and host a series of language exhibits, activities and events that generate opportunities for engaging with the language of Mparntwe, Alice Springs, Central/Eastern Arrernte.

The project is being produced by Watch This Space in collaboration with Arrernte language experts, supported by Batchelor Institute, Akeyluerre Healing Centre, Children’s Ground, the Alice Springs Library & the Alice Springs Language Centre, and funded through the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund and Batchelor Instituture. The project is moving with current concerns of the Arrernte language, as defined by its custodians, and exploring language’s potential for altering the way settlers and visitors experience place.
