Abstract: In 2012, the remote Aboriginal community of Wilcannia agreed to pilot for the first time in Australia the mass adult literacy campaign model using the internationally renowned Cuban developed Yes I Can method for teaching adult literacy. The pilot was supported by a Cuban academic who came to Australia for this purpose, and included a participatory action research evaluation led by the University of New England Project Manager. In this symposium, the Aboriginal leaders of the project will join with the two education academics, one from Australia and one from Cuba, to describe the pilot project and reflect on its outcomes.
