Apmere angkentye-kenhe is a social project made in collaboration by artists and Arrernte people, valuing Central/Eastern Arrernte as the first language of Mparntwe Alice Springs and examining the potential of language exchange to affect place, people and power.
The project was run independently as an artist-run initiative operating out of the Yellow Shed behind the Uniting Church in Todd Mall. Activities valuing Arrernte language were run from here and a range of language learning materials were created.
From 2019 the project was run through Akeyulerre. We have developed a smart-phone app for learning-about-place and language available here. We also have a range of language learning materials available at our shop.
