IWC Bundaberg is inviting the community to come together and celebrate local First Nations Peoples' cultural heritage at its NAIDOC Block Party.
As part of NAIDOC's National Celebration Week, the community event will take place on Monday 3 July, from 11 am to 3 pm at Boreham Park.
The NAIDOC Block Party promises to be a connective occasion designed to honour and recognise the rich heritage and invaluable contributions of our regional First Nations peoples.
There will be a range of engaging games and activities throughout the day, including the opportunity to paint your own boomerang and clap sticks.
This hands-on experience will allow everyone to connect with the artistic traditions of the First Nations peoples.
Unlock your creativity and take home a special masterpiece.
One of the highlights of the NAIDOC Block Party will be the Elders' yarning corner.
Here, community members are given a space to engage in meaningful conversations with respected Elders.
A chance to listen to their stories, wisdom, gain valuable insights into the significance of cultural heritage and its profound journey to healing, while showing utmost respect for Indigenous traditions and protocols.
In addition to the activities, IWC Bundaberg is putting on a free community barbecue with a selection of grilled food.
The event will also feature a variety of food and drink trucks serving throughout the day, ensuring a diverse culinary experience for our vibrant community.
Joining the NAIDOC Block Party celebrations are several local support organisations coming together to promote health and wellbeing for the whole community.
