ALIA Sydney Event - Focus On Indigenous Services
Celebrate Indigenous Literacy Day on 6th September, then follow up with this event aimed at helping you to find out what resources are available for your metropolitan indigenous community, how these resources are being used and developed, and how to improve your welcome for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders all year round.
Join us at this event on September 7th, at 6pm, in the Theatrette, Waverley Library. ALIA Sydney is delighted to present an evening with two wonderful speakers on Indigenous services, and at the same time collect money for The Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
Kirsten Thorpe from the Indigenous Services Unit at the State Library of New South Wales will showcase some of the work that unit does, in particular highlighting the digital resources that are available for you to use or download and improve your welcome for the indigenous community.
