Be Deadly Online community

Be Deadly Online is an animation and poster campaign about big issues online, like bullying, reputation and respect for others.

Developed with deadly Indigenous writers and voice actors, all Australians can enjoy these short, fun animations and learn about how we want to behave together online.


We acknowledge the traditional owners and custodians of the land. We honour and respect the cultural heritage, customs and beliefs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the people who have contributed and continue to work with us on the Be Deadly Online resources.
