The history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples take pride of place at the National Gallery of Victoria for NAIDOC Week. NAIDOC Week celebrations take place all over Australia with events being organised by groups and individuals.

The program starts on Sunday, July 7 at 2pm with a drawing session by Brian Martin who was highly commended in the 2012 Deadly Awards. All ages and artistic abilities are catered for with people being welcomed to come and go at any time. This is a great idea for families who may want to try a new activity and not feel pressured. Perhaps it might also attract someone who might want to try a new artistic pursuit in an informal setting.

The program concludes on Saturday July 13 at 3pm with a superb double film screening of Wanga Watangumirri Dharuk and Sand to Celluloid.

There are two events on a number of days but none on Monday July 8. Art, films, floor talks, lectures and tours ensure this is one of the best NAIDOC programs in Melbourne.
