NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians.

NAIDOC Week is held in the first week of July. It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.

Celebrate NAIDOC Community Day at Perth Cultural Centre with these activities: 

We encourage everyone to participate in the celebrations and activities that are taking place in the Perth Cultural Centre during NAIDOC Week and this Community Day. For more information on NAIDOC week please download the program

The Community Day is a collaboration between ourselves, Department of Culture and Arts, Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, State Records Office, Aboriginal Art Centre Hub WA, Art Gallery of WA, The Western Australian Museum, State Library of WA, The Blue Room Theatre, State Theatre Centre of WA and Screenwest.

This event is supported by Wesfarmers Arts and Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company.
