As a direct response to the UN International Year of Indigenous Languages, the National Gallery of Australia is developing a major children’s’ travelling exhibition, Body Language, to be released in early 2020.

For many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people identity is a source of strength and reliance, there are many ways in which we identify, what we believe in, how we look, how we feel and how we see ourselves in society. Language is fundamental to the expression of culture identity, before the arrival of the British colonisers in 1788 there were over 250 Indigenous Australian languages, including 800 dialects, but today those numbers have dramatically declined to under 50 spoken languages.

Please see our website for more information on this exhibition.
