Talk

Indigenous Literacy Day 2012

Celebrate and support Indigenous Literacy Day 2012 at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

10.00 – 10.30am
Veolia Lecture Theatre, Level 2
Hear from well-known and respected writers and artist-illustrators Dub Leffler and Bronwyn Bancroft as they talk about the inspiration behind their work and the power of literature.

10.30am – 2.00pm
Seminar Room, Level 2
Bring along a book and participate in the Great Book Swap Challenge. Sharing our common love of books will be the focus of our fundraising to support Indigenous literacy. Guests on Indigenous Literacy Day are encouraged to donate one of your favourite books and pay a gold coin donation to swap it for someone else’s book.

The day aims to increase literacy levels of Indigenous children living in remote areas of Australia. All money raised is donated to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Participants in the Great Book Swap Challenge are encouraged to drop books off at the MCA‘s National Centre for Creative Learning before the event on Mondays or Fridays between 3.00 – 4.00pm.
