First Languages Australia was pleased to work in collaboration with the organisers of the WANALA Forum to hold a one and a half day meeting on the management of the significant collections of language materials held by regional language centres, language programs, literature production centres, language workers and communities.

Meeting participants included the managers of a number of major regional language centres, language workers, academic partners, literature production centre staff, NT Library and First Nations Media; with presentations from around the country via video for those unable to attend in person.

Together the group explored the issues shared by organisations managing collections, and ways to work together to ensure their sustainability into the future.

Detailed notes from the event are available here.
