I love the concept behind Queensland Museum's new exhibition 'This is my heritage.'
Using a combination of still images and film, Queenslanders of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Island heritage tell their stories through the personal connections they have to particular objects in the museum collection.
On now, just in time for NAIDOC Week!
The sun is shining & the stage is nearly set for what's going to be another awesome start to NAIDOC week for 2015!
NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
If you're in Sydney today, why not come down & check out the fantastic & free NAIDOC in the Park event hosted by the City of Sydney Council in beautiful Hyde Park.
I'm excited & honoured to be the MC for this event again!
There is plenty of fun & activities for all ages so come along & learn, participate & celebrate the oldest continuing culture on earth.
There are performances on the main stage throughout the day, workshops, tours, cooking demonstrations, dancing circle, a marketplace & a massive kids section (Taronga Zoo, Australian Museum, storytelling, traditional dancing, rock climbing, art & basketball & rugby league clinics run by the Sydney Kings & South Sydney Rabbitohs, who are bringing the NRL Premiership trophy they won last year & are allowing everyone to be photographed with it) and a catered area for the elders.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME!!
The event runs from 11am-3pm.
