Ngapartji Ngapartji brings together Pitjantjatjara and non-Pitjantjatjara people, honouring everyone’s contribution, to create a process of Ngapartji Ngapartji: exchange and cross-cultural collaboration. Young people and elders, along with arts mentors and language workers, are producing diverse linguistic and cultural material for Ngapartji Ngapartji''s online language and culture site, Ninti ([[ninti.ngapartji.org]]). With storytelling at the heart of this ever growing website, the audience is invited to engage with Pitjantjatjara language and culture beyond the experience of the staged performances. Content production is driven by ideas that emerge from the young people and elders through community process. A language and culture reference group, Ninti Mulapa, comprising senior Pitjantjatjara elders and language workers, oversees and reviews the cultural and linguistic appropriateness of site content. Ultimately it is hoped that the profile of the Ngapartji Ngapartji project and its model generate a broader understanding of and interest in the value and preservation of all Indigenous languages, not just Pitjantjatjara.
