Arts Centre Melbourne will host a variety of exciting events across NAIDOC Week, 3 – 10 July.
Arts Centre Melbourne proudly continues its work with First Nations artists and communities in celebrating their storied culture, country and resilience.
NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
