Celebrate the Indigenous Literacy Foundation and Indigenous Literacy Day with the University Library
This year we are showing our support to the foundation by celebrating Indigenous Literacy Day.
Did you know… 'Sorry Day' and the ‘National Apology’ are two different significant dates for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people?
To read some of the stories from the Stolen Generations and their descendants, access the full Inquiry document or read the guide to the findings of the ‘Bringing Them Home report’, visit the book display located in the Barr Smith Library Level 1 Yaitya Ngutupira reading area.
The University Library has teamed up with the Art Gallery of South Australia to highlight Tarnanthi Festival artists and their forerunners. Immerse yourself in some of Australia’s most prestigious and dynamic Australian Indigenous contemporary artists in honour of Tarnanthi Festival 2019. This Festival is an annual celebration showcasing contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art at its best and boldest.
Indigenous Literacy Day (ILD) is a national celebration of Indigenous culture, stories, language and literacy. In recognition of both ILD and the International Year of Indigenous Languages, the library has partnered with the Indigenous Literacy Foundation to host a storytelling event in the Yaitya Ngutupira Collection area to be read for the Adelaide Campus Childcare Centre children.
NAIDOC week is held between 7-14 July and the theme this year is Voice. Treaty. Truth. Let's work together for a shared future. In recognition of NAIDOC Week, the library has created a display with selected materials from the Barr Smith Main Collection, Law Library, and Yaitya Ngutupira, which showcases this year’s theme. We would like to encourage staff and students to visit the library display during July to learn and increase their knowledge and understanding of the significant issues and challenges we share as a country, with visitors welcome to leave comments on the peg line.
