Socials: #CanberraNAIDOC

Whilst official NAIDOC Week celebrations have been deferred, we would still like to bring the community together to commemorate Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander cultures during NAIDOC Week via a digital event.

Participating community sector organisations will be hosting a live stream Q&A session with local community members to discuss the meaning and importance of Aboriginal culture to them, with particular focus on this year’s theme – ‘Always Was, Always Will Be’.

The Q&A will be facilitated by Dan Bourchier from the ABC.

This will be coupled with a combination of live and pre-recorded interviews and performances from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members, interspersed with contributions of videos / creative pieces, on this year’s theme, from the local community.

Competition for ACT Community Sector NAIDOC Week Event

We are looking for community members and individuals to create their own videos and/or photographs of this year’s theme for NAIDOC 'Always Was, Always Will Be'. Entries will be included as part of our Facebook Live event on the 7th of July at 11am.
