What’s happening during NAIDOC Week in Sydney

NAIDOC Week is here.

A week is hardly long enough to celebrate the culture, achievements and history of Australia’s First Nations people – but it’s a start. NAIDOC Week’s (7-14 July) theme this year is Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud and Proud and informs celebrations of the richness and resilience of First Nations culture and community occurring around the country.

In Sydney, events all over the city honour the world’s oldest living culture, such as Burramatta NAIDOC on Saturday July 13 in Paramatta Park, part of Parramatta’s annual First Nations festival, Warami. Expect kids’ activities, workshops, stalls, performances, bush-food workshops and live music including hip-hop artist JK-47.

On Wednesday 10 July, Sydney’s Town Hall becomes a festival hub for NAIDOC in the City, an all-day event featuring a smoking ceremony, markets and dance performances during the day and a free ticketed evening concert at Centennial Hall featuring comedian Isaac Compton, hip hop star BARKAA and singer Riah.
