NAIDOC Week 2022

Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!

NAIDOC Week 2022 will be held from Sunday 3 to Sunday 10 July and 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.

The NAIDOC 2022 theme – Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! - invites the nation to rally for systemic change and support institutional, structural, collaborative and cooperative reforms. It emphasises that beyond acknowledgment and good intentions, the relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non‑Indigenous Australians needs to be based on justice, equity, and the proper recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ rights.
