Logan City Council has given Goodstart Early Learning Shailer Park a special events grant for the live streaming of a NAIDOC event celebration titled Our Nangara.

 

Each day during NAIDOC week, which runs from Sunday, 8 November  until Sunday, 15 November, from 10am and 3.30pm, a pre-recorded act or performance from an Indigenous performer will be live streamed through Microsoft Teams.

 

The program will feature performing arts, dream time stories, cooking and local history segments. 

 

Alongside the Goodstart celebrations, those residing in Logan City Council will be able to celebrate NAIDOC week by engaging in art projects available through the local libraries. 

 

Family activity packs will be available from all nine library branches from Monday, 9 November to Saturday, 14 November throughout NAIDOC Week, and feature materials and instructions on how to make rainbow serpents from pipe cleaners and wooden Australian animal decorations.

 

Local residents have also been encouraged to use the week to explore the short online stories by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who live, work or perform in the City of Logan through the our words, our stories platform

 

A Wild Foods and Cultural Festival will feature bush tucker, dancing, weaving demonstrations, face and boomerang painting and arts and craft stalls throughout NAIDOC week, which will include singers Adam James and Chris Tamwoy.

 

Full details of the week can be accessed via logan.qld.gov.au/naidoc
