Celebrate NAIDOC Week
Yesterday marked the start of 2014’s National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week, so get set for seven days of celebrating Indigenous history, culture and achievement. And wherever you are, you can take part – NAIDOC Week features flag raising ceremonies, art exhibitions and family fun days, and they’re happening across the country, so check the NAIDOC Week event calendar for details. The festivities will conclude this Friday 11 July with the National NAIDOC Awards on the Gold Coast, a night that honours the outstanding achievements and contributions made by Indigenous artists, scholars, sportspeople, Elders and community members from all over Australia. Tickets have sold out, but you can tune in to NITV to watch the awards broadcast on Saturday 19 July at 7:30 pm AEST.
