NAIDOC Week Events in Perth

 

NAIDOC Week is held each year in July across Perth and Australia. The NAIDOC 2021 theme – Heal Country! – calls for all of us to continue to seek greater protections for our lands, our waters, our sacred sites and our cultural heritage from exploitation, desecration, and destruction.

NAIDOC Week 2021 will be held from Sunday 4 July to Sunday 11 July. Each year NAIDOC week grows in stature and depth of celebrations at community, state and national level. It is an opportunity for all Australians to come together to celebrate the rich history, diverse cultures and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the oldest continuing cultures on the planet.

With the current climate of COVID-19, please check the event details before attending as circumstances may change. Please take care to observe hygiene guidelines and any government advisories.

 

MOVIE SCREENING – FIRESTARTER – THE STORY OF BANGARRA

Sunday 4 July, 5.45pm – 8:30pm

Backlot Theatre, 21 Simpson Street, West Perth

Bookings essential

Join us in the foyer for pre-screening finger food by Indigenous caters Gather Foods.

Firestarter – The Story of Bangarra is a historically important film that takes the viewer through Bangarra’s birth and spectacular growth to where we are today entering our 4th decade. It recognises Bangarra’s early founders and tells the story of how three young Aboriginal brothers – Stephen, David and Russell Page – turned the newly born dance group into one of Australia’s leading performing arts companies. Through the eyes of the Page brothers and company alumni, Firestarter explores the loss and reclaiming of culture, the burden of intergenerational trauma and crucially, the extraordinary power of art as a messenger for social change and healing.

The documentary features remarkable archival footage and interviews with those integral to Bangarra’s establishment, including co-founders Carole Johnson, Cheryl Stone along with a number of former dancers and creatives.

Enjoy this free screening at the Backlot Theatre, as well as complimentary popcorn and water.

NAIDOC Week Cultural Walk

 

Learn about Aboriginal history and culture on this free guided walk through Mary Carroll Park Wetlands.

Join an Aboriginal Elder who will share cultural stories while members from the Friends of Mary Carroll Wetlands group will showcase some spectacular local native plants.

 

The Mary Carroll Park wetlands, in the heart of Gosnells, provide a very important breeding, roosting and summer refuge site for local and international water birds.

 

The wetlands fill with storm water in winter and generally drying up in late summer. They support a wide range of water birds, including Pacific Black Duck, Musk Duck, Pink-Eared Duck, Blue-Billed Duck, Grebe, Teal, Pelican and Black Swan. They are also recognised as one of the largest roosting sites for Sacred Ibis.

 

They provide important water bird breeding habitat, and are a very important regional summer refuge as smaller wetlands in Perth dry out. In addition to water birds, they support songbirds, reptiles, amphibians and turtles.

 

The Friends of Mary Carroll Wetlands work with the City of Gosnells to manage the wetlands and their surrounds. The aim of the group is to rehabilitate, conserve and maintain the natural environment of the wetlands, and to promote community awareness of their important values.

 

Event Schedule:

9:00am | Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony

9:30am | Guided walk or wet weather activities ( Talking Circle, sensory table with nature items from the wetlands, iScopes)

10:30am | Morning tea and Dreaming Stories
