This week on Women on the Line we travel to Mparntwe, also known as Alice Springs, to look at the Arrernte language project Apmere angkentye-kenhe which translates into English as “A place for language.”
We’ll speak with artist Beth Sometimes, and hear excerpts from a forum on language held on July 3rd as part of the project to coincide with NAIDOC week, featuring Amelia Turner, Veronica Lynch, Pamela Lynch, Veronica Turner, Felicity Hayes and Margaret Kemarre Turner.
The "50 words everyone who lives in Mparntwe should know" can be heard here: https://soundcloud.com/watch-this-space-ari/50-words-everyone-who-lives-...
