WEEK 2017

Jingeri - Hello

The Gold Coast NAIDOC Committee is dedicated to showcasing  Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture through NAIDOC Week celebrations.

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across the nation each July to celebrate the history, richness of our culture and achievements as Australia's First Peoples, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

NAIDOC is celebrated through the wider community and this week provides a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Gold Coast  Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. Come along and celebrate our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture.

NAIDOC originally stood for 'National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee'. This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the of the week itself.

The Council of the City of the Gold Coast have decided to no longer fund the Gold Coast NAIDOC Committee to host the community event during NAIDOC Week.
