QNS talks:

2019 was the United Nations Year of Indigenous Languages and Queensland Narrating Service collaborated on the Indigenous voices: Our Words, Our Stories Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages project with Logan City Council Libraries who received funding from State Library of Queensland and Telstra under the Deadly Digital communities funding. Over ten months participants explored a different Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander language culminating in the recording of 11 language stories, which offer a unique local insight into language, heritage and knowledge, captured at this moment in time by community members.Guided by Robert Ah Wing, project co-ordinator, and guest language speakers, community members were invited to share their language and knowledge through the spoken word. QNS provided digital recording equipment and training to Robert and Cheryl so that they could facilitate the recording and assist those who wished to record their stories. QNS also provided the post-recording sound production, editing and digital mastering of the audio files that have been made available as podcasts, with visual overlays, from the Logan Libraries website.

Our words, our stories podcast series recorded by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who live, work or perform in the City of Logan. Please follow the link to listen to the wonderful stories, captured at this moment in time.
