Celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage

IT will be a celebration of the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people during NAIDOC Week this month.

Held from 8 to 15 July, a range of events will be taking place in Hobart thanks to a partnership between the City of Hobart, Reconciliation Tasmania and the University of Tasmania.

The NAIDOC Week Forum will feature a theme of ‘Because of Her, We Can’, recognising the invaluable contribution that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have made – and continue to make – at community, local, state and national levels.

The panel discussion will be chaired by Her Excellency Professor the Honourable Kate Warner AC, Governor of Tasmania.

It will feature inspiring women from across Tasmania including Aunty Patsy Cameron, Clair Andersen, Fiona Hughes, Erica Maynard and Alderman Helen Burnet.

The forum will be held on 12 July from 5.30pm to 7pm at the Dechaineux Theatre, University of Tasmania, located at 41 Hunter Street, Sandy Bay.
