NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
CatholicCare Social Services Hunter-Manning hosted its Annual Indigenous Art and Cultural Program on 11 and 18 June, with participants thrilled by the artworks they created with guidance from artist Lesley Salem, daughter of renowned artist Les Elvin.
