    The AustLit and BlackWords Team from the School of Communication and Arts at The University of Queensland regularly hosts Great Book Swaps to raise funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Students and staff from UQ's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies Unit have also helped. 

    So far over $1,400 has been raised. Many thanks to UQP and the State Library of Queensland for their wonderful donations of books.

    Dr Anita Heiss, ILF lifetime ambassador is our inspiration.
