The Literary District runs on passion and community support. We regularly donate books to libraries and schools, work with community organisations that have literacy outreach programmes and donate books to their causes.
In 2020, with a grant from the City’s Department of Community Development, we workshopped six storybooks in vernacular languages. We’re now working on ways to get these books into print to share with as wide an audience as possible.

The goal for this initiative was to revitalise the art of oral narrative, and make reading interesting for children by bringing the stories to life.
