NAIDOC Week

This year the theme for NAIDOC Week is Voice. Treaty. Truth. Working together for a shared future.

The theme is derived from the Uluru Statement of the Heart, which set out these three elements as the basis for reform: a First Nations Voice to Parliament enshrined in the Constitution; a Makarrata Commission to supervise treaty processes and truth-telling.

NAIDOC Week will allow for a focus on advocacy for a treaty and the processes that will support this. As we know, Australia is one of the few liberal democracies without a treaty with First Nations (contrasting with New Zealand and Canada, for example).

Local events include:

Mission Songs Project

Yinga Choir

dhumba-njan dhumba-njarr

Our Voices Echo Through the Kuuyang

Winter Concert: Kutcha Edwards

NAIDOC Week at The Track Gallery

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people and other peoples of the Kulin nation as the traditional owners of the land on which our work in the community takes place. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
