Celebrated from 3rd July through to 10th July 2022, NAIDOC Week recognises the important history and culture of Australia’s first peoples.
NAIDOC stands for, National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee.
This year’s theme “Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!” is a reminder and push to continue the momentum for systemic change.
It’s time to show more support and secure institutional, structural, collaborative and cooperative reforms. It’s time to celebrate the earliest resistance fighters and those still fighting change today for equal and basic human rights.
Whilst there is a long history of the treatment/mistreatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, from 1991 until today we’ve seen a huge growth in awareness of Australias first peoples art, music and culture. It is a rich and lively culture which Australians should know more and have an understanding about.
Each year, the NAIDOC Committee receive over 300 submissions to design their themed poster, click here to learn more about this years winner, Ryhia Dank, and the inspiration behind her winning piece.
