Indigenous Art and Culture

 

Also delegates may be interested to know that the week following the conference is NAIDOC Week. 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. NAIDOC Week is held in the first full week of July. 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.

Every year special events to mark NAIDOC Week are held so for those delegates looking to extend their stay be sure to check out some of the events associated with NAIDOC Week.
