IT'S a time of change ahead for all of us who have operated within the ATSIC framework to build projects and programs up from very humble beginnings.

FATSILC has appreciated a strong working relationship with the staff in ATSIC, and it's hoped that the changes aren't too disruptive for all involved.

 

Just what the future holds no one can guess at this stage, so the approach being taken is to concentrate on what has been achieved, push on with new ideas and promote confidence in a strong future for languages.

This is part of the Governing Committee's thinking in calling everyone together in Alice Springs later this year for the 2004 AGM and Languages Forum.

There's news inside also on Queensland and Western Australian meetings.These will offer the chance to workshop state issues; network and plan ahead, and also allow feedback on two major projects for this year — the National Survey of Indigenous Languages, and the draft of the
Language Project Model Contract and Community Protocols Guide.

So despite changes, there's plenty to be positive about at this stage.

We'd love to hear what's happening in your area. So how about dropping us a line at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
