Literacy is Freedom
The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation (ALNF) believes literacy is freedom - to take control of your life, be informed, have a voice, stand up for your rights, resist exploitation, be self-confident and self-reliant. Literacy unlocks the door to learning and a world of endless possibilities, allowing people to write their own future.
This National Reconciliation Week, Crystalbrook Collection is proud to be the official hotel partner for ALNF's powerful campaign 'Literacy is Freedom', empowering First Nations communities across the country through literacy, language and education.
Aussie fashion brand Deus Ex Machina have designed a t-shirt sharing the 'Literacy is Freedom' message - with 100% of proceeds supporting ALNF’s vital work on the ground.
Artist, campaign ambassador and our hotel namesake, Vincent Fantauzzo, made an appearance at Crystalbrook Vincent in Brisbane this week to mark the occasion. He stands alongside the likes of other well-known Australians including Danzal Baker (Baker Boy), Hugo Weaving, Miriam Margolyes, Adam Goodes, Buddy and Jesinta Franklin and Tim Minchin (alongside many others) in supporting ALNF.
Our collaborators (that's Crystalbrook for 'staff') across our seven hotels and resorts are joining campaign ambassadors in wearing t-shirts throughout National Reconciliation Week, raising awareness for this issue and showing their solidarity.
‘Literacy is Freedom’ t-shirts are now on sale, exclusively online at David Jones, select stores, and in-store at Deus Ex Machina in Camperdown:
