NAIDOC Week 2020 happened digitally due to COVID-19, and this year large-scale events such as the NAIDOC Ball and the Nairm Marr Djambana awards night are being postponed until October when, hopefully, we can all get together and celebrate. With this in mind, some NAIDOC 2021 events are still going ahead throughout Frankston City, so there’s no excuse not to be part of this rich Indigenous cultural experience.

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to highlight the history and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This year’s theme of Heal Country, Heal Our Nation calls for all Australians to be more committed to recognising and protecting all aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture. Baluk Arts’ Heal Country exhibition at Frankston Arts Centre’s Curved Wall Gallery runs from July 1-August 28, while the Namatjira School of Art’s Mparra Karrti – Us mob belong to Country exhibition is on at FAC’s Mezzanine Gallery from July 1 to October 2. Frankston Youth Services will be presenting an Aboriginal art workshop for 12 to 24-year-olds on July 5. It’s facilitated by Nina Turner, a proud Aboriginal woman from Kokatha mob in South Australia. NAIDOC Week storytime takes place on July 6 at Frankston Library, and Aunty Di O’Brien will give a FrankTALK via Zoom on July 8 to discuss her memoir Daughter of the River Country.

This year’s NAIDOC Week theme encourages all Australians to embrace First Nations cultural knowledge and their understanding of Country. Handpicked as part of the FAC 2021 Season in celebration of NAIDOC Week, FAC is presenting Belloo Creative and Critical Stages Touring’s play Rovers. Intrepid performers Barbara Lowing, pictured left with Roxanne McDonald, get behind the wheel and navigate audiences into precarious terrain on July 13. Buckle your seatbelts and be prepared for a hilarious ride.

Protecting Country and Indigenous culture is non-negotiable. This NAIDOC Week, which officially runs from July 4-11, go to www.frankston.vic.gov.au or www.mornpen.vic.gov.au to find out what’s on and in turn learn more. It’s important.
