NAIDOC Week Celebrations are Australia-wide from 7 to 14 July 2019. It's a moment in time when we stop to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Celebrations are not just for the Indigenous communities, but for and by Australians from all walks of life. Support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and participate in a range of activities running throughout those dates in July.
Watch out for local events near you that are organised by communities, government agencies, local councils, schools and workplaces. In fact, if you're up for organising a NAIDOC event in your area, you can find tips HERE on how you can go about celebrating NAIDOC. You'll also find resources on the website eg poster, logo, banners, to help you out. Once you're through organising your event, you can SHARE IT by registering it first, and once the team have checked it over, your event will be published. See HERE for all events taking place across Australia.
Her artwork Awaken depicts early dawn light rising over Uluru, symbolising continued spiritual and unbroken connection to the land. The circles at the base of Uluru represent the historic gathering in May 2017 of over 250 people from many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations who adopted the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
Join in the weeks events near you and give voice to the celebration of our Indigenous culture. You'll find events in WA, NSW, QLD, NT, ACT and SA.
