Every July, Australians from all walks of life celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples during NAIDOC Week.

This year’s theme is Heal Country!

While the NAIDOC gala Awards Ceremony has had to be postponed until later in the year due to COVID-19, NAIDOC week will still proceed from 4-11 July, organisers say.

NAIDOC Week posters and other resources

Every year a commemorative NAIDOC poster is released.
The 2021 poster features beautiful artwork titled Care for Country by Maggie-Jean Douglas, a Gubbi Gubbi artist from South East Queensland.
Around 150,000 hard copies of the poster will be available from 1000 Woolworths stores across Australia from Tuesday 29 July.
An additional 50,000 posters are available from the National Indigenous Australians Agency regional network offices.
Around 18,000 digital copies have already been downloaded.
Logos, social media tiles and email signatures are also available on the NAIDOC website.

Teaching resources and a free colour-in poster have also been produced and are free to download.
