Indigenous Literacy Foundation’s Busking For Change Initiative

Primary Schools nationwide have been invited to learn and perform a song in the northern Australian Indigenous language.

Part of The Indigenous Literacy Foundation’s Busking for Change initiative, this year’s song is Shordi Krik, written by the students at the Northern Territory’s Barunga Remote Community School and foundation Ambassador, Justine Clarke.

Last year’s initiative raised more than $80,000 to ensure Indigenous communities have access to books, and their stories published in language. This year, the foundation hopes to raise $110,000 for the cause.
