ILF Great Book Swap

The Indigenous Literacy Foundation has opened registrations for this year’s Great Book Swap.

As part of UNESCO’s focus on Indigenous languages this year, ILF is inviting workplaces to find out why Aboriginal languages matter. The book swap will encourage participants to learn about one of four Indigenous cultures and their languages, and actively helping ILF put 35,000 books into the hands of children and their communities in remote Australia. This year’s ambassadors are Jared Thomas, Natalie Ahmat and Justine Clarke.

Workplaces holding a Great Book Swap will be assigned to a Language House, where they can learn a little bit about one of four significant cultures and languages: Tiwi, Kriol, Walmajarri or Arabana. The program aims to register 1000 workplaces, schools, libraries and book clubs.

Registrations can be made here.
