Special Event

Indigenous Literacy Day 2014

Lend your support for Indigenous Literacy Day by taking part in The Great Book Swap Challenge. Bring along one of your favourite books to swap with a gold coin donation to participate. All money raised will be donated to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

The event will feature special guest Dub Leffler, an illustrator an author who has just returned from our Ambassador visit to the Tiwi Islands.

Dub Leffler has collaborated with a wide range of artists including Colin Thompson, Shaun Tan and Banksy. His debut picture book, Once There Was A Boy, was written to encourage kids, especially boys, to be unafraid of their own emotions. ‘When I was growing up, boys didn’t talk about how they felt, especially if they were sad, and that meant their friends couldn’t help them out.’

Visit the MCA on Indigenous Literacy Day (Wednesday 3 September 2014) to hear Dub speak. Bring a book you love but are willing to part with, and a gold coin and you can pick up a great new read.
