For Our Elders
Celebrated every July, NAIDOC week is an opportunity to come together as a community to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, history and heritage.
2023’s NAIDOC Week theme is ‘For Our Elders’.
This year’s theme is about honouring, celebrating and paying respect to Elders; for their wisdom, knowledge, resilience and unwavering strength. They are the cultural knowledge holders, trailblazers, nurturers, teachers, survivors, leaders, advocates and activists. They are the custodians of their culture and have paved the way for future generations.
You can support NAIDOC Week and get to know your local Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities through activities and events held across the country. This year you will find Illawarra Legal Centre participating in the following NAIDOC events:
Monday 3/7/22 11am-2pm – Shellharbour City Council NAIDOC Event at Shellharbour Civic Centre
Tuesday 4/7/22 10am-1pm – NAIDOC Family Fun Day at Darcy Wentworth Park Warrawong
