Indigemoji

app / digital inclusion project

Coming soon! Indigemoji is Australia’s first sticker set of Indigenous emojis made by young Aboriginal people in Central Australia - featuring faces, roo tails, troopies, plants, animals and local hand signals.

 

It’s a chance to grow digital skills, while learning and sharing Arrernte language and culture in a whole new way. The emojis are made by Indigenous people for Indigenous people (an everyone else...). It will enable a new means of communicating on digital platforms using signs and

signifiers from their own culture and language - a small but significant step towards improving the representation and inclusion of the many diverse cultures and languages of Australia in digital technologies.

960 kids attended the pilot workshop program running every day of the summer school holidays at the Alice Springs Public Library from 14 December 2018 until 26 January 2019 which will eventually result in a free app which will be downloadable to enable anyone to use the emoji stickers.
