NAIDOC Week 2024: When Is It and What Events Are Running This Year?

NAIDOC Week is back for 2024. The annual event celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples Australia-wide, and offers us all a powerful opportunity to listen to and learn from First Nations communities.

This year, NAIDOC Week’s theme is Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud and Proud, and according to the official website, the goal of this theme is to celebrate the spirit of First Nations communities and invite “all to stand in solidarity, amplifying the voices that have long been silenced.”

If you’re wondering how you can get involved, here’s a quick guide to what’s on this year.

The awards ceremony will be held on July 6 this year at the Adelaide Convention Centre in Tarndanya (Adelaide) on Kaurna Yerta (Country), South Australia.
