NAIDOC Week

Held across the country from 7-14 July 2024, NAIDOC Week will celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

This year’s theme chosen by the National NAIDOC Committee, is Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud & Proud.

We have engaged with Iwiri Arts and KU Arts to celebrate NAIDOC Week this year with an exhibition, ‘kapi wala’, to celebrate the art and culture of their artists. In addition to ‘kapi wala’, a range of artist led interactive activities will also be held, including basket weaving, storytelling, face painting, bush tucker + artefacts and jewellery making workshops.
