Welcome to UTS for IndigiHack

Welcome to UTS


What is UTS and what is our role in IndigiHack

UTS is proud to host the Youth and Language Indigi Hack August 7-9 in Sydney run by IndigiLab. We are providing support for the Hackathon as we hope that students will experience some of the excitement of learning on campus and the sort of things they can make with the support of a university and their staff.

Give us some feedback:

The Sustainable Development Goals provide a good guide for you to focus on in your project, but first there is an overall sustainability goal in any project you will do, the sustainability of Aboriginal Languages in the present day, and how to compete against the use of english etc on social media, web sites and phones which is drowning out our languages. Language is culture and the sharing of language is the only way to keep that culture alive and well. 

The inaugural Indigi Hack is a way for more people to contribute to the new ways for culture to grow and flourish. This will succeed only if we grow the number of people who take up this challenge.

What aspect of culture would you like to see shared and practiced by all Australians (eg languages spoken, dancing, music):
