Language and Culture Space

We have set up a new Language and Culture Space at Yuendumu. The Language and Culture Space opens the way for increased community access to the Warlpiri Media Archives, which are attached to the Language and Culture Space. The Archives house over a thousand hours of audio-visual cultural and community recordings made by PAW since 1984, and which are recognised for their national significance.

The Space has 3 iMAC computers all with Internet. In addition to standard browser applications and Mac standard software (iMovie, iPhoto, etc) the computers provide access to MS Office desktop applications and digital image editing software.
The Space offers kitchen facilities, separate entrance with wheelchair-access and is suitable for small screenings of PAW Media productions. It also provides computer access to language, cultural and educational resources.
The room can be booked on a fee-for-service basis by trainers. 

Thanks to GMAAAC, Charles Darwin University, Department for the Arts, Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet and the Aboriginals Benefit Account for funding to support the refurbishment of the space, purchase of computers and furnishings and wages for Warlpiri language workers. Thanks also to the NT Library for additional computers and Internet access provision.
