With Covid restrictions across Sydney, the NAIDOC Week program looks a little different this year. Fortunately there are still ways to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

NAIDOC celebrations are taking place from 4 to 11 July. Some dates have been extended.

Buy from these virtual stores and support First Nations business

Explore the virtual collection of stallholders. You’ll find everything from arts and wellness products to clothing, food and kitchenware. Support local First Nations retailers and treat yourself or loved one.

From Saturday 10 July

Get crafty with a free online weaving workshop

Join Ronnie Jordan from Culture on the Move to learn the ancient art of weaving. You'll receive a weaving pack through the post ahead of the workshop to make your own basket.

Watch NAIDOC in the City live

The 2-hour show for the whole family presents a range of performers, stallholders, workshops and giveaways. Speakers include Aaliyah Bradbury and Jake Gordon.

Help represent First Nations communities on Wikipedia

Do something different for NAIDOC this year and represent First Nations people in this Wikipedia edit-a-thon. With the help of workshop leaders, you’ll join a group to improve articles of importance to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities on Wikipedia.

Saturday 10 July from 11am to 2pm

This year's NAIDOC theme ‘Heal Country!’ calls for stronger measures to recognise, protect, and maintain all aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and heritage.
