Their latest investment round brings amazing support for youth arts, literature and music in Australia. Director of Arts Investment, Alice Nash said: “This significant investment will fuel creativity and connect communities across the country. We're proud to back these incredible projects and can't wait to see the impact they will have in Australia and the world. 

So what does this mean for us here at StoryBox Hub? We were successful in obtaining a Creative Australia grant, which means BIG news for us and our vision to continue to increase accessibility to our stories for our deaf and hard of hearing community. This grant will enable us to partner with Auslan Consultancy to increase our Auslan Story Time Series! Currently sitting at 30 Auslan stories on Story Box Library, with extra funds we will now be able to create 40 MORE Auslan-interpretations of children's books, accessible for free via your public libraries for families and school subscriptions classrooms across Australia.  

So keep your eyes peeled in the coming months for some of your most loved stories come to life with Auslan translations.

In the meantime you can view our current Auslan Story Time Series here.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through Creative Australia, its principal arts investment and advisory body.
