NAIDOC WEEK 2018

2018 NAIDOC Week
'Because of Her, We can'

Under the theme - 'Because of Her, We can!' - NAIDOC Week 2018 will be held nationally from Sunday 8 July and continue through to Sunday 15 July.

This year NAIDOC Week will celebrate the invaluable contributions that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have made, and continue to make to our communities, our families, our rich history and to our nation.

As reflected on the NAIDOC (opens in a new window) organising committee website, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have played  and continue to play significant roles in the community, local, state and at national levels.They are our Elders, our grandmothers, our mothers, our aunties, our sisters and our daughters.

For over 65,000 years, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have carried our dreaming stories, songlines, languages and knowledge that have kept our culture strong and enriched us as the oldest continuing culture on the planet.

As part of NAIDOC Week celebrations at the University, all staff and students are invited to take part in the annual NAIDOC Week Quiz, and view the photographic exhibition titled 'Too Dark to See' in the Badanami Centre (Building 12), Bankstown Campus (opens in a new window) and the Yarramundi exhibition in the Badanami Centre, (Building EY), Parramatta South Campus (opens in a new window).
