NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This year the theme is “Because of her, we can”, which highlights the importance of Aboriginal women in our society and their continued leadership in our community.

This year several government and non-government agencies in Geraldton have united together to hold Nyarlu  NAIDOC celebrations at Edith Cowan Square (across the road from the courthouse).  These celebrations will be held on Friday 13th of July 2018 from 11am to 2pm. There will be a variety of events happening including face painting, bouncy castle, free sausage sizzle and a variety of food to sample. Radio Mama will be broadcasting the event  and all agencies will be showcasing their services to the community.

Desert Blue Connect will have a stall at the event and will be offering craft activities that include creating affirmation booklets and also offering Djembe drumming.   It is a  very exciting event for everyone to participate in, so come down to the foreshore in front of the Courthouse and enjoy the activities.
