NAIDOC Week is celebrated by people from all walks of life, Indigenous and non‑Indigenous.
NAIDOC Week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support and amplify the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
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.
Want to get involved? Big or small, here are ways you can show your support this NAIDOC Week!
SUPPORT INDIGENOUS ARTISTS
Aboriginal and Indigenous art goes beyond the paint on the canvas. Every artwork tells a unique and important story that is so personal to the artist. Show your support for this incredible art form by following artists on social media and maybe even purchasing their work!
Here are a few artists our P&P Team love!
SUPPORT LOCAL MUSICIANS
We are so lucky in Australia that we have some incredible Aboriginal and Indigenous musicians killing the music scene. Some of our faves are Baker Boy, Thelma Plum, The Kid LAROI, Yothu Yindi, Briggs, Dan Sultan, Miiesha, and Jessica Mauboy!

EDUCATE, EDUCATE, EDUCATE
Knowledge is power, and what you do with that knowledge can be even more powerful. We encourage you to read about, learn, and listen to Indigenous stories. We believe many important lessons are immersed in the Aboriginal culture and history.
Not sure where to start? Why not find out what Aboriginal land you are on? The Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies has created a map of Indigenous Australia. It shows how we are made up of many different and distinct Aboriginal groups, each with its own culture, customs, language and laws. Find your land here.
