Indigenous Literacy Day - 5 September 2018



90-18012018132802-0-278-3944-2876-750x547-cropped-elliott-t1-5.jpgIndigenous Literacy Day on 5 September 2018 is a national celebration of Indigenous culture, stories, language and literacy.

Through activities on the day, we focus our attention on the disadvantages experienced in remote communities and encourage the rest of Australia to raise funds and advocate for more equal access to literacy resources for remote communities. 

Whether you are a school, bookseller, publisher, library, business, organisation or individual, here are some ways you can participate on this day:

  • Hold a Great Book Swap
  • Donate a percentage of your product sales on this day – very popular for bookshops!
  • Make a donation through our website 
  • Hold a literacy event such as a book launch or storytelling session
  • Take an ILF donation box to work or school 
  • Buy an ILF t-shirt for your staff or students to wear to work or school 
  • Hold your own fundraising event 
  • Advocate on social media and tag @IndigenousLiteracyFoundation on Facebook and @IndigenousLF on Twitter
