Who are we?

Greg Dickson

project manager

My name is Greg Dickson and I grew up in Brisbane where I studied linguistics. I first lived in Ngukurr in 2004, working at the language centre and I have been learning and speaking Kriol ever since. I manage the Meigim Kriol Strongbala (Making Kriol Strong) project and am happy to still be supporting Ngukurr people to do this type of work.
