NAIDOC Week 2012

The first week of July is NAIDOC Week.

NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.  The Friday of NAIDOC Week is National Aboriginal and Islander Day.

Events are held throughout the week and there is a poster competition.  For more information, go to the NAIDOC webpage.
The theme for NAIDOC Week 2012 is Spirit of the Tent Embassy: 40 years on.  It celebrates the spirit and courage of those who established the Tent Embassy outside Parliament House in 1972.

Copies of the winning poster are on display in the foyer of Kelvin Grove Library.  Inside the library, there is a  selection of our large collection of books about the art, dance, music and literature of  Indigenous Australians.
