The whole Flinders community is invited to join in a fun rock painting activity and cupcake giveaway to mark this week’s National Aborigines and Islander Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) celebrations.
Flinders University’s Office of Indigenous Strategy and Engagement (OISE) will be hosting the free event in the Hub, between noon and 1pm on Wednesday 7 July, with staff and students welcome at any time during the one-hour celebration to enjoy a free cupcake decorated with Indigenous-inspired colours, or pick up a brush and get involved in an educational rock art class.
Participants can choose from a small rock fridge magnet or a paperweight to paint with their own Indigenous-inspired design. There will be plenty of ideas on hand with information about various Aboriginal symbols, or for those keen on preparing in advance, you could look to the tiles outside Yunggorendi Mande – which are featured throughout Flinders University’s Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan.
The full list of NAIDOC Week events happening in South Australia are listed on the NAIDOC website.
Where: Ground floor, the Hub at Bedford Park
When: noon to 1pm, Wednesday 7 July
