event date:

We welcome you to join us at the WAG from 11am for a special presentation as a part of NADIOC Week 2018.

After a welcome and smoking ceremony by elder Robbie Lower, join us for a showing of a mini-documentary by Sid Sprague commissioned by the WAG for NAIDOC 2018 that tells the story Elder Robbie Lowe’s Great Grand Mother, Grand Mother and Mother and their courageous fight for survival. We are proud to be presenting this film on Sunday 8th July at 11:15am (about 15 minutes) followed by a Q&A with Uncle Robbie and Sid. Sherry Johnston, author, illustrator and Case Worker at the Gunditjmara Cooperative will also be unveiling a poster she has made in response to the 2018 NAIDOC theme ‘Because of Her We Can’ and be speaking about why this year's theme is important to her.

NAIDOC Week

NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. Read more about NAIDOC Week here.
