NAIDOC 2024<BR>Family Tour with KHT & NGV

Families and children of all ages can celebrate NAIDOC Week and join KHT and NGV to journey across Fed Square in this tour visiting both galleries.

Start the morning off at NGV where you will join NGV Curator of First Nations Art, Michael Gentle and Wadawurrung artist Deanne Gilson to explore First Nations artworks in the NGV Collection. Then head over to KHT to discover artworks by the late Josh Muir as part of the soon-to-end exhibition JXSH MVIR FOREVER I LIVE before learning about some of the important cultural objects in KHT’s Collection.

End the tour with an afternoon tea at Koorie Heritage Trust where you will be free to explore the NAIDOC Market and make yourself a Deadly Bracelet or paint a gum leaf.

Free, but bookings are required.


ABOUT NAIDOC

The 2024 National NAIDOC Week theme is Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud and Proud.

The fire represents the enduring strength and vitality of First Peoples cultures, passed down through generations despite the challenges faced. It is a symbol of connection to the land, to each other, and to the rich tapestry of traditions that define Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

“Blak, Loud and Proud” encapsulates the unapologetic celebration of First Peoples identity, empowering us to stand tall in our heritage and assert our place in the modern world. This theme calls for a reclamation of narratives, an amplification of voices, and an unwavering commitment to justice and equality.

National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year (Sunday to Sunday), to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Peoples cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth.
