NAIDOC 2021
This week we celebrate NAIDOC 2021 from 4-11 July to recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The 2021 National NAIDOC poster, ‘Care for Country’ was designed by Gubbi Gubbi artist Maggie-Jean Douglas and inspired by this year’s theme Heal Country! The artwork is bright and vibrant, exploring how Country has cared for and healed First Nations people spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially and culturally. NAIDOC originally stood for ‘National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee’ which was once responsible for organising national activities during this week.
