NAIDOC Week at the MLC Centre
NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The theme for this year’s NAIDOC celebrations is ‘Songlines’ which pays tribute to the living narrative of our nation. Dreaming tracks - or Songlines – record the travels of the ancestral spirits who 'sung' the land into life.
MLC Centre is proud to support NAIDOC Week and on July 7, will host the traditional Aboriginal performance and education troupe, Diramu Aboriginal Dance & Didgeridoo. The performers are part of the Walangari Karntawarra tribe.
There will be two performances at 12:30pm and 1:15pm, at the MLC Centre on level 8, at the steps leading to the forecourt. Join us to see a traditional dance and didgeridoo performance, and hear a talk from the performers.
"Through learning more about Songlines, all Australians can celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures as the oldest continuing cultures on the planet,” says National NAIDOC Committee co-chairs Anne Martin.
Thursday, July 7 at 12:30pm and 1:15pm at the MLC Centre on level 8, at the steps leading to the forecourt.
