Deadly Digital Communities is an initiative of State Library of Queensland and Telstra in partnership with local government through their Indigenous Knowledge Centres (IKCs) and public library services. It is a community-based digital technology skills training program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities across Queensland with the aim to increase digital literacy.
Since the program began in 2017, 4,656 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders have embraced digital technology by participating in over 1,220 free training sessions delivered across the state through participating IKCs and public libraries. Participants have developed digital skills from sending an email to using social media to paying bills online to promoting a new business idea and more.
The 2020 Deadly Digital Communities Grant opens 17 February 2020 and will close 27 March 2020.
All Queensland councils who operate an IKC or public library service are eligible to apply for a grant of up to $10,000 to deliver the program to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in their local government region.
The 2020 Deadly Digital Communities Grant Package provides grant guidelines and the online grant application form.
This grant program is funded by Telstra.
