About the event
Join us for an insightful and engaging online roundtable discussion, "Voices from the Countryside: Multilingualism in Rural Australia," where we will hear from bilingual and multilingual families living in rural settings. This event is hosted by Multilingual Australia, and we invite you to share your stories, experiences, and challenges of maintaining your linguistic heritage in rural communities. Aims and Outcomes: The primary aim of this workshop is to create a platform for rural bilingual and multilingual families to share their unique experiences and perspectives, which are often underrepresented in conversations around language preservation and multiculturalism. By participating in this roundtable discussion, you will contribute to a greater understanding of linguistic diversity in rural Australia and help inform the development of our next community paper. Register now for this important and enlightening discussion.
