Language and the Arts

Amelia: For the past 8 years or so, a community arts company called big hART has been working on a project in Alice Springs, writing and producing theatre in the Pitjantjatjara Language. They have been performing their work around the country to people who have taken their online Pitjantjatjara Language courses. You can find out more at http://www.ngapartji.org/ (project homepage) and at http://ninti.ngapartji.org/ (online language learning course). I’ve never had the opportunity to get along and see anything, but what an exciting project!

    I saw Ngapartji Ngapartji in Sydney when it was performing. They then played it in the Ernabella creek which would have been great to see. Didnt get to see their seocnd production. The Wbe lessons are now free in the past they had to be paid for – so are worhtwhile having a look at.

      Hi Clare, only just saw your response! How was the performance? It would have been a few years ago now hey? How much of it could you understand? And did they get a good turn out? Sorry, so many questions! Amelia.
