Nominations Open for Macarthur 2020 NAIDOC Awards


 

Dear valued community members,

 

At this stage we are planning for the 2020 NAIDOC awards night to go ahead at a future date, however in light of the current COVID-19 situation we are constantly reviewing this and will keep you up to date.

 

The past weeks have seen some significant and difficult times for our community.  We feel, by going ahead with planning the NAIDOC 2020 awards will give us the opportunity to focus on something to celebrate and to recognise the commitment and care of Aboriginal people and their supporters.
