NAIDOC Week

GET UP! STAND UP! SHOW UP!

We are proudly celebrating NAIDOC Week 2022 by featuring artwork from local Indigenous artist, Zowie around Fairfield Gardens. This year, NAIDOC week will be held Sunday 3 to Sunday 10 July.

Zowie hails from the Kombumerri tribe and Butchulla tribe. She is a self-taught contemporary Aboriginal artist and her art combines both traditional and modern mediums effortlessly, to create pieces that are truly alluring to the eye. Click here to see more of Zowie’s incredible artworks.

Each year NAIDOC week grows in stature and depth of celebrations at community, state and national level. It is an opportunity for all Australians to come together to celebrate the rich history, diverse cultures and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the oldest continuing cultures on the planet.

The 2022 NAIDOC theme – Get up! Stand up! Show up! – encourages all of us to champion institutional, structural, collaborative, and cooperative change while celebrating those who have already driven and led change in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities over generations.
Visit the official NAIDOC website for further information.

We would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of this land on which we gather. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders for guiding us in the past, walking with us in the present, and leading us into the future.
