Celebrate Indigenous culture at the Melbourne Campus

Spear_inset

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

You have been warmly invited by the Ngarn-gi Bagora Indigenous Centre of La Trobe University to participate in the 2016 NAIDOC week celebrations and activities on Melbourne Campus.

It’s a good opportunity to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture, and recognise the achievements Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.

In particular, the screening of ’Spear’ on Wednesday 6 July at 5 pm in the Agora Cinema, is an event that shouldn’t be missed. You can view the trailer here.
