$250 Grand Prize for the Logo Contest for the new Dwadwenaga:dat Language Centre at Woodland Cultural Centre!

What does language mean to you? Woodland Cultural Centre is excited to be moving towards the opening of our new Language Centre.

Exciting things are happening here at the Dwadwenaga:dat Language Centre. (pronounced Dwad-wen-ah-ga-dot) which roughly translates to “Let’s Interpret” or more specifically “let us all interpret/orally translate between two languages”.

Our team feels this is very fitting for the world we live in today as Onkwehonwe, in our attempts to preserve maintain languages and ceremonies for each of our languages in today’s modern times. We believe that each of our Onkwehonweneha (Our ways/our language) are just as important as the next.

We are offering a $250 Prize to the logo selected by our jury.

When creating your design think about this:

  • What does language mean to you?
  • How does language help people?
  • Why is it important to preserve indigenous languages?
  • What symbols, colours or pictures represent that?

Language preservation is a huge part of the work we do here and we are looking forward to reopening the centre with a new name and a new logo.

This logo will be shared on an International level as we continue to develop educational programs for Indigenous Language preservation.
