Local Grants Help Capricornia Celebrate NAIDOC 2020

NAIDOC Week 2020 is just around the corner, running from 8 to 15 November and Central Queensland Indigenous Development, Yuwi Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC and The Hall State School have been provided $8,000 to help celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander excellence and Australia’s rich history and culture.

The grants for Capricornia are part of the Morrison Government’s $1.4 million program to support local organisations to celebrate the week.

Federal Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry invites everyone to get involved, learn more about local Indigenous cultures, and share in the traditions that make Australia unique.

“NAIDOC Week is always a special event on the community calendar,” Ms Landry said.

“This year’s theme, Always Was, Always Will Be., highlights Australia’s ancient history and celebrates the traditions and cultures that endure today.

“We are privileged to have one of the world’s oldest continuous cultures and through NAIDOC events we can share in this proud history and contemplate our future.

You can find out more about events and information about NAIDOC Week 2020 will be posted to www.naidoc.org.au

All of the events funded as part of the NAIDOC local grants program are required to have COVID-19 plans in place. It is important that anyone attending an event observes these plans and local restrictions to ensure everyone stays safe.
