NAIDOC Exhibition

NAIDOC Week is an Australian observance lasting from the first Sunday in July until the following Sunday. NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The week is celebrated not just in the Indigenous communities but also in increasing numbers of government agencies, schools, local councils and workplaces.

The Central Highlands Regional Council are long standing NAIDOC celebrations supporters. This year the Emerald celebrations include an exhibition on display during the month of July to recognise and celebrate many the talented Indigenous artists featured in the council art collection.

Exhibition Dates: 3-26 July between 9.00 am and 5.00pm Mon-Fri
