NAIDOC celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year (Sunday to Sunday) to celebrate and recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s history, culture, and achievements. Each year, the NAIDOC Week theme is chosen to highlight matters of importance, create awareness and to recognise the achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
The NAIDOC Week theme for 2022 – Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! – encourages all of us to champion and drive institutional, structural, and collaborative change while also acknowledging and celebrating those who for generations have driven positive change for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities.
NAIDOC is celebrated by people from all walks of life, Indigenous and non‑Indigenous. NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories, and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth and to support and amplify the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. You can support and get to know your local Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities through activities and events held across Brisbane.
