Indigenous Literacy Day - YouTube Live Premiere:

  • When: Wednesday 2 September at 12.30pm, 
  • Where: On the Indigenous Literacy Foundation YouTube channel at 12.30pm on the day,
  • How: Click on the link to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation YouTube channel here.

This 45-minute celebration will go live on YouTube at 12.30pm. The event is highly visual, and designed to educate broader Australia about the value of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s first languages and why learning in language is important. Kids and community members from Tiwi Islands and Jilkminggan in the Northern Territory and Bidyadanga in Western Australia share their stories and the value of language, and Cheryl Lardy reads Yu sabi densdensbad? (Can You Dance?) in Kriol.

ILF Ambassadors Andy Griffiths, Shelley Ware, Alison Lester, Josh Pyke, Natalie Ahmat, Jared Thomas and Anita Heiss, co-patron June Oscar AO and long-time ILF supporter, Archie Roach, will also share their insights and stories of community engagement. And Jessica Mauboy will sing a stunning rendition of an Australian favourite. Indigenous Literacy Foundation (2020).
