Apmere angkentye-kenhe

A Place for Language


Apmere angkentye-kenhe is an ongoing language project and space in Mparntwe/Alice Springs. It values the power of language and recognises and promotes Central/Eastern Arrernte as the first language of this place.

Made through a collaboration between artists and Arrernte people, this social project exames the potential of language knowledge exchange to affect local relationships.

The project initially produced a series of Arrernte language related events, screenings, exhibitions, sound works and learning resources and repurposed a shed in the middle of town as an experimental educational space in June and July 2017.
