NAIDOC WEEK 7-14 July 2019
This year the national NAIDOC theme is “Voice, Treaty, Truth”. The events held
in Bundaberg during NAIDOC week incorporate the current theme whilst building on the inclusions of past themes .
NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920′s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians.
It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society. We encourage all Australians to participate in the celebrations and activities that take place across the nation during and to actively be involved in the local awards nomination process.
Falling in the second week of the mid-year school holidays the arts workshops are available to ALL people, children and adults to enjoy. The Bundaberg & District NAIDOC delivers a full calendar of events for the enjoyment of the whole community during NAIDOC week 7-14 July 2019.
