Can you imagine not being able to read a newspaper, a road sign or directions on a bottle of medication? Sadly, this is a reality faced by many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders living in remote communities today.
The Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) aims to raise literacy levels and improve the lives and opportunities of Indigenous Australians living in remote and isolated regions.
This is done by providing books and literacy resources to Indigenous communities and raising broad community awareness of Indigenous literacy issues.
Join us at an exclusive advance screening of The Sapphires and help raise funds to address literacy in remote Indigenous communities.
The Sapphires is an inspirational tale set in the heady days of the late ‘60s about a quartet of young, talented singers from a remote Aboriginal mission, discovered and guided by a kind-hearted, soul-loving manager.
Come along and enjoy a fantastic night out, while also helping others.
