OUR UPDATES

Keep the fire burning! Blak, loud and proud – NAIDOC Week theme 2024NAIDOC Week, which first began in 1975, provides 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.This year’s theme celebrates the unyielding spirit of the First Nations community and culture, and invites all to stand in solidarity, amplifying the voices that have long been silenced. ‘Fire’ from the theme, represents the enduring strength and vitality of Indigenous cultures, passed down through generations despite the challenges faced. It is a symbol of connection to the land, to each other, and to the rich tapestry of traditions that define Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The ignited flame represents a renewed commitment to acknowledging, preserving, and sharing the cultural heritage of our First Nations peoples that enriches our nation. "Blak, Loud and Proud" encapsulates the unapologetic celebration of Indigenous identity, empowering our First Nations peoples to stand tall in their heritage and assert their place in the modern world. This theme calls for a reclamation of narratives, an amplification of voices, and an unwavering commitment to justice and equality. It invites all Australians to listen, learn, and engage in meaningful dialogue, fostering a society where the wisdom and contributions of Indigenous peoples are fully valued and respected.Let's carry the flame of NAIDOC Week 2024 forward, igniting conversations and actions that honor and uplift First Nations cultures across Australia.#NAIDOC2024 #NAIDOCWeek #BlakLoudProud ...
