This year’s NAIDOC Week theme, ‘Songlines: The Living Narrative of Our Nation’, encourages us to learn about the Dreamtime – when ancestral spiritual beings shaped our rivers, lakes, plants, land formations and living creatures.

Our program of events celebrating NAIDOC Week continues to grow, and this year everyone who comes to Hyde Park for NAIDOC in the City will be able to learn a lot about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures through displays from the Australian Museum, the Powerhouse, the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence and others.

There’s a terrific range of music performances and also a wonderful emphasis on activities and fun for kids – whether it’s a Dancestry workshop with NAISDA and Muggera Dancers or story-telling with Anita Heiss.

NAIDOC Week is a great opportunity to recognise and celebrate our Indigenous cultural fabric – something we do every day at the City.

I hope you enjoy this diverse program for NAIDOC Week and take the chance to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across the country.
