NAIDOC in the North 2021 cancelled 

Our hearts are heavy as we let you know that NAIDOC in the North 2021 has been officially cancelled. 

We’re still looking forward to announcing the winners of the people’s choice awards in the Healing Ngunnawal Country exhibition so be sure to tune in to the Belco Arts Facebook page at 10:30am on Saturday 30 October to hear the announcement. Voting will remain open until midnight on Monday 25 October, so if you haven’t already, have a look through these beautiful images and cast your votes in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Supporter categories. 

We’ll also be replaying a series of beautiful videos filmed for NAIDOC in the North online in 2020 to give you just a little taste of the wonderful celebration we had planned for you. Tune in for performances by Johnny Huckle, Dale Huddleston, the Wiradjuri Echoes and a fabulous storytime session with Larry Brandy. 

We’re currently working with our artists and performers to develop other opportunities for them within our program calendar – so stay tuned for some small and intimate ways to connect and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture throughout the year. 

Stay safe, take care of each other and we can’t wait for the opportunity to come together again for NAIDOC in the North 2022. 

NAIDOC in the North was created in partnership by Belco Arts through the Gungahlin Arts program, ACT Child and Family Centres, ACT Education Directorate, Libraries ACT and Communties@Work. It is supported by the ACT Government, Icon Water and Ginninderry.
