Next week USQ will celebrate the NAIDOC theme ‘Our Languages Matter’ with events on campus and in the community.
USQ is passionate about celebrating the languages, spirituality, culture, achievements and contributions of our nation’s First Peoples.
Four events will be coordinated on-campus including: art exhibition ‘Our Languages Matter’ curated by Dr David Akenson and Dr Robyn Heckenberg; and a BBQ lunch and Gumbi Gumbi Garden Tour organised by USQ’s College of Indigenous Studies, Education, and Research.
There will be a FREE movie screening of ‘Satellite Boy’, and a public lecture by acclaimed linguist Des Crump from the State Library of Queensland.
USQ encourages staff, students, and the community to attend NAIDOC Week celebrations.
