For the first week in July each year Australia recognises National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across the country, to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth. You can support and get to know your local Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities through activities and events held across the country.
This year’s theme is Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! and activities and events across Brisbane will allow everyone to support and get to know local Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities.
Whether it’s seeking proper environmental, cultural and heritage protections, Constitutional change, a comprehensive process of truth-telling, working towards treaties, or calling out racism—we must do it together.
It’s time to celebrate the many who have driven and led change in our communities over generations—they have been the heroes and champions of change, of equal rights and even basic human rights.
To celebrate NAIDOC Week 2022 we spoke with AimBig Employment’s National Indigenous Engagement Manager, Tanya Allford.
The relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non‑Indigenous Australians needs to be based on justice, equity, and the proper recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ rights.
Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! with Australia to amplify our voices and narrow the gap between aspiration and reality, good intent and outcome.
