As part of our Stories That Matter for Teens online event we’re proud to share The Crossing, Kulkirta Kilkurtin, a film by Director Will King based on the life of Uncle Rob Lowe, shot with a 360-degree camera. Designed to be viewed with a virtual reality headset, you can still view the film in 360° on YouTube. As you watch this film you will notice a transparent compass like icon on your screen. Hover your mouse on this icon and by clicking on the down/up and left/right arrows you will be able to pan the viewpoint to scan the scene you are watching from every angle.

Are you ready for Australian Reading Hour 2021?
Ok, take a deep breath, and repeat after us.
“I will read or listen to an Australian book, whether written or drawn or illustrated or spoken aloud, wherever I may be, in city or bush, in the bath, in bed or up a tree, for one hour on Tuesday 14 September 2021. I will read silently or aloud, I will read by myself or in a crowd. I will read a story that matters to me.”
