NAIDOC week is finally approaching but in 2020 NAIDOC is in the unusual month of November. Oh, how I missed NAIDOC this year being halfway through the year with some events happening a little early and some a bit later I have managed to be a part of many different NAIDOC events usually starting with the National Indigenous Art Fair run by the Blak Markets and held in Sydney generally a week or so early than other events which are so great as I love being a part of all the different celebrations. Luckily the Blak Markets are still running an event this year in Sydney at The Rocks which should be interesting as it is in the same area as the Fair but just a different month.
This year I will be involved with AIATSIS online NAIDOC event and you can find out more about this event and the other great Indigenous Artists through www.aiatsis.gov.au. Register to win an Indigenous Artwork valued at over $1900.
The Meeanjin Markets are back on 27th November 9 am-9 pm via Facebook https://m.facebook.com/meeanjinmarkets/ this is a really great event with entertainment throughout the day - technically this isn't a NAIDOC event but is great just the same.
With Christmas fast approaching and the post taking longer than usual on all the packages now is the time to support Indigenous Businesses and grab something handmade with care and you know each sale makes such a big difference to me and all of the Indigenous Businesses keep producing, growing and giving back to Community.
