NAIDOC Week – We All Stand on Sacred Ground

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920′s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians.

NAIDOC week celebrations are held annually around the country during the first full week of July to acknowledge and celebrate history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

It is a timely opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.

This year the Dunghutti Ngaku Aboriginal Art Gallery will acknowledge and showcase artworks of our Dunghutti region together with aboriginal artists of the mid north coast from 6-12 July 2015.

The Gallery is situated inside the Visitor Information Centre, South Kempsey Park on the old Pacific Highway.

Gallery hours are from 10am – 4pm Tuesday to Sunday.

Be sure not to miss this opportunity to view and support your local Aboriginal Artists and Art Gallery.

‘This Exhibition has been made possible through funding from Australian Government Indigenous Visual Arts Industry Support program.’
