Bayala: Free Language Courses

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!

Back by popular demand for the third year, be part of the revival of Aboriginal language of Sydney with an introductory one-hour Aboriginal language class developed by Darug woman Aunty Jacinta Tobin and Gadigal man Joel Davison.

Learn greetings, landscape and place names, body parts and more, as well as a song you can then perform at Barangaroo on 25 January. 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.
