Indigenous Literacy Day livestreamed from Sydney Opera House

For the first time since its inception a dozen years ago, Indigenous Literacy Day will be livestreamed from this iconic landmark.

This year’s Indigenous Literacy Day (ILD) will showcase three bilingual children’s books and, for the first time, the event will be livestreamed from the Sydney Opera House on Wednesday 6 September, featuring ambassadors Jessica Mauboy, Gregg Dreise, Justine Clarke and Josh Pyke, as well as children from Barunga Remote Community School.

Created as part of the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF), the day was launched 12 years ago to platform and celebrate the stories, cultures and languages of First Nations peoples.
