Bayala means ‘speak’ in local language. Local language is being reawakened, in a sharing and celebration of the Indigenous heritage of Sydney.
Classes, talks and a mass choral performance have been developed, with Eora and Darug community leaders and language experts, to celebrate local Sydney language. Learn how to speak the first language of your home town, in three 50 minute classes spread across three days.
If you came along to a class in previous years, or would like to learn more, extend your knowledge of local language by taking part in a three-day course that delves deeper into language structure, developed by Aunty Jacinta Tobin and Joel Davison.
In 2019, the classes have a focus on Indigenous knowledge of the stars, astronomy and navigation by the night sky, to coincide with our three collaborative art installations celebrating space exploration and the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.
