The community is being invited to free NAIDOC Week events at Lithgow Library celebrating the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
As part of NAIDOC Week 2015, which is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life, the Library will host an exhibition of artworks by local Aboriginal people, as well as by local school students from 29 June to 31 July 2015. This exhibition may include paintings, drawings, collage, weaving and any other traditional or contemporary creations.
An official opening and morning tea will be held at the Library on Monday 6 July 2015 at 10.30am. This free event will be open to everyone in the community with no bookings required. Join us to enjoy a special celebration of music and dance, a viewing of the artworks and a taste of bush tucker.
NAIDOC Week Storytime will be held at the Library on Wednesday 8 July at 10.30am. Aimed at pre-schoolers, this celebratory Storytime will feature storytelling by Aunty Helen, and an Aboriginal themed craft activity. Everyone is welcome to this free session.
“NAIDOC Week provides a unique opportunity for us to share and celebrate Indigenous culture and heritage through food, art and celebration, while also appreciating the great partnership we have with our local Indigenous community,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Maree Statham.
Providing a range of quality exhibitions and community programs that offer educational and social opportunities for all members of the community is part of Council’s Caring for the Community Strategy in the Community Strategic Plan 2026.
