Everyone is welcome to attend!

Join us to celebrate our local indigenous cultures with lots of music, entertainment and activities for the entire family. This year the City is also partnering with Brothaboy to host a NAIDOC Youth Festival on the same day.

The 2017 theme, Our Languages Matter, celebrates the preservation and revitalisation of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages – the original language of this nation.

There will be special performance by local artists, activity hubs for children and youth, information stalls, giveaways and a free sausage sizzle.

 

 

FATHERING PROJECT TIPS:

Engage in the activity.
Make eye contact and really pay attention to what is going on.
Put your phone away and put work out of your mind during the time you are at your child’s activity.
Really focus on them.
Be there mentally, not just physically.
Take some time before you get home to write down work issues to attend to later so you can focus on your kids when you get home.
