In 2017 the Australian Council for Adult Literacy celebrates 40 years of actively promoting language, literacy, numeracy, and communication provision and research.

The conference title – Traders, Neighbours and Intruders: Points of Contact – provides the framework for collective change where policy makers, practitioners and researchers can learn from and engage with a long history of language and policy provision in northern Australia and our neighbours in Asia.

For centuries Australia’s northern regions have often been portrayed as marginal to the communication practices that sit at the heart of mainstream Australia. Yet northern Australia’s rich linguistic traditions, its multicultural engagement, its economic agendas and its policy making opportunities in remote and very remote contexts suggest multiple and diverse ways of moving forward as a prosperous nation.
