Deadly Digital Communities

Deadly Digital Communities

State Library of Queensland has partnered with Telstra to help address the digital inclusion gap for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in Queensland. The Deadly Digital Communities Program encourages Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to dream big through digital literacy to create and unlock new opportunities and new possibilities for themselves and their community. The current program is offering community-based digital literacy and technology training through Indigenous Knowledge Centres and public libraries across 5 local government areas in Queensland.
