Tracey will teach Gamilaraay at the University of Sydney next year, Priscilla coordinates the Gamilaraay Yuwaalaraay Yuwaalayaay Language Nest at Lightning Ridge and Tanya is currently teaching in Walgett.

Tracey and Priscilla give a talk at LCNAU: Guwaalaylanha (Talking to each other) about Revitalising Indigenous Languages. Steve was at LCNAU in recognition of his receiving the Patji Dawes award for outstanding language teaching. Sophie Mung, a Gija woman and teacher, was the co-recipient. John, Cathy Bow (and Greg Williams) also gave a talk: The Australian Indigenous Languages Institute: supporting and promoting Indigenous language work in Australian universities (aili.cdu.edu.au).
