Language Revival Fact Sheets
Publisher: Victorian Aboriginal Corporation for Languages
The Victorian Aboriginal Corporation for Languages has produced this series of factsheets to support communities working to revive their languages. These factsheets reflect what we learned from the Meeting Point Project, which was run between 2008 and 2014. In that project, we focussed on the ways revival languages are being brought back into communities by Elders, language workers and language activists. All the fact sheets are about these newly living languages, brought from the past into the present and future. To download the whole series click here.
Economic and Social Impacts of Indigenous Community Volunteers
The KPMG report Economic and Social Impacts of Indigenous Community Volunteers (ICV) Activities endorses the value of the ICV model of invitation and local empowerment to achieve social and economic impacts. Findings are based on analysis by KPMG of ICV’s work in two Indigenous communities in NT and WA. The report recommends ICV continues to pursue its community development approach which puts communities at the forefront, building on existing community strengths, partnerships, assets and local knowledge.
