Coodlie Park Boomerang Project

As part of a joint partnership project between the FWLC, Ceduna Aboriginal Arts and Culture Centre and the Ceduna Youth Hub, the FWLC ran a Boomerang language signage project at Coodlie Park.

Designing, painting and installing 18 Boomerangs at Coodlie Park, the FWLC is working to revitalise the Wirangu language in the linguistic landscape of the region by using Wirangu words as signage around the park.

This project was born out of the Elders and Youth Mentoring Camp that is run out of Coodlie Park to raise awareness about elder abuse prevention in a culturally appropriate way. The Boomerangs helped facilitate the language development within the region.

FWLC Launch New Website

The FWLC have launched a new website to act as a contact and resource guide for people interested in learning about Gugada, Mirning and Wirangu.

The website will help in facilitating contact between the wider South Australian public and the Ceduna community with the aim of facilitating and encouraging the revival of the Gugada, Mirning and Wirangu languages.

Providing resources and points of contact the hope is FWLC.org.au will become a first port of call for all West Coast Language resources.

Language Learning Program Launch

The FWLC in cooperation with the Mobile Language Team from The University of Adelaide launched their Language Learning Program located at the FWLC.

The aim of this project is to create a digital learning space for people to learn the languages of the Far West Coast. Featuring the Wirangu, Mirning and Gugada languages these repositories of langauges feature all the translations, example sentences and audio files of the languages we currently have at our disposal.

The Language Learning Programs are only available to use at the FWLC centre, pop in anytime and hear Wirangu, Gugada and Mirning.
