NAIDOC Week Celebrations

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia from 7 to 14 July each year to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

This year the theme is Voice. Treaty. Truth. Let’s work together.

NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

You can find out more about NAIDOC Week and activities around South Australia at www.naidoc.org.au

NAIDOC Week follows National Reconciliation Week which is held every year from 27 May to 3 June. This year, the team in MyPATH took part in a painting session with artist Daphne Rickett as part of National Reconciliation Week.

The group enjoyed painting on canvas and rock and as you can see, Dot, Kim, Kate, Maria, Stephen, Lorraine, Maddie, Charlie and Charlotte had a wonderful time getting involved.
