COMMUNITIES across central Victoria are preparing for NAIDOC Week 2022 (Sunday, July 3 to Sunday July 10).
NAIDOC (National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee) Week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
NAIDOC Week also recognises the need for systemic change and that relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians needs to be based on the recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' rights.
The theme for this year is Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!
We have compiled a list of the events that are being held in central Victoria and will continue to add them as they come through.
If your event is not listed and you would like it to be, email us: email@example.com or phone us on 5434 4470.
