3rd-10th July 2016 is NAIDOC week, a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander History, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and society.
This year, the winner of the prestigious National NAIDOC Poster Competition is Lani Balzan a Wiradjuri-Aboriginal woman from NSW. The artwork is entitled Songlines Tie All Aboriginal People Together.
You can view this beautiful piece on the NAIDOC website at http://www.naidoc.org.au/ along with a list of events to take place during the week.
Why not try and create your own piece of aboriginal artwork? The following link is aimed at upper primary year levels and gives lots of tips and ideas to create your own story in the form of aboriginal artwork. Would love to see your creative masterpieces!
