NAIDOC 2022: Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!

Get up! Stand up! Show up!

National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across the lands now known as Australia in the first week of July each year (Sunday to Sunday), to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

This year’s theme – Get up! Stand up! Show up! – encourages all of us to champion institutional, structural, collaborative, and cooperative change while celebrating those who have already driven and led change in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities over generations.

To celebrate and recognise Indigenous Social Work and Practice by AASW members, the AASW will also be facilitating a presentation by a member who is completing significant in-field research, with a focus on indigenous knowledge, culture, or practice. This one-hour presentation will be released, free of charge, to all AASW members, so that they may too, enjoy the contribution that our Aboriginal and or Torres Strait Islander members, are making to the field of social work.

Please check back here shortly for more details.
