What's on this NAIDOC Week?

Published on 24 June 2022


Join us as we celebrate NAIDOC Week for 2022!

NAIDOC Week activities are held across the country in the first week of July every year, and provide all of us with the opportunity to learn about and celebrate First Nations histories and cultures.

This year’s NAIDOC Week theme, ‘Get up! Stand up! Show up!’, encourages all Australians to amplify the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, whilst being advocates for systemic change and institutional, structural, collaborative, and cooperative reforms.

Burwood Council will be hosting FREE events to celebrate NAIDOC Week this year, and encourage everyone to come on down and get involved!
