Walks: The Language of Melbourne

We walk Melbourne’s streets every day, but have you ever considered how the city grid shapes the language in which we speak? Nadia Rhook explores how the spatial order of language was made through the colonisation of Kulin land and the politics of Chinese and South Asian migration.

Ticket price includes morning tea at the MWF Festival Club at ACMI at the conclusion of the walk.

Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday 21 July. This session is not able to be booked on a Festival Pass.
