Brisbane Writers Festival
At the centre of all art ... story.
UPLIT is a platform for sharing stories and ideas. We enable Queenslanders to engage in critical thinking, literary love affairs and public conversation. Communities are the heart of what we do and we believe that reading communities are connected communities.
2016 has been both a successful and transformative year for our organisation. More than 50,000 people shared their passion for reading through Brisbane Writers Festival, INSPIRE Festival, individual author events and bespoke regional engagement programs.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, thousands of little readers and their families had a blast exploring the colourful world of Queensland author/illustrator Katherine Battersby’s latest picture book Little Wing in Alphabet Zoo, our much-loved children’s interactive play space within Brisbane Writers Festival 2016.
But why should our city kids have all the fun?
All Queensland children deserve equal and frequent opportunities to cultural experiences that expand their imagination and foster a lifelong love of reading, regardless of geography. We’d love to take Alphabet Zoo ON SAFARI to engage children all over Queensland with the wonderful worlds created through children’s literature – but we need your help.
At the centre of our story? You.
We raise 75% of our income from non-government sources.
Support from generous and passionate individuals enables Alphabet Zoo to engage with remote regional Queensland areas.
Your gift will:
• safeguard the future of stories and ideas
• help us tour Alphabet Zoo to four different locations across Queensland in 2017.
• nurture the role of storytelling, storymaking and reading in more communities
• provide accessible and inclusive programs for all Queenslanders
• sustain UPLIT (including BWF)'s ability to elevate the vitality of literary arts
