Celebrate NAIDOC week on campus on the 9th July

All Flinders staff and students are invited to join NAIDOC celebrations next week, with the Office of Indigenous Strategy and Engagement hosting a special event complete with engaging activities and delicious sweet treats.

This is a repost from an internal memo, but relevant to all staff and students..

On Tuesday 9 July, the OISE team will be in the Student Hub at Bedford Park to distribute free Vilis donuts – and Villis will donate its proceeds from the donuts to support the Tjindu Foundation, an organisation dedicated to empowering Indigenous youth through education and cultural programs. The OISE team will also be issuing free Yaru water, produced by a social enterprise that supports various Indigenous health and community initiatives through the Yaru Foundation.

The Student Hub will come alive with special jewellery-making and craft sessions, where you can get hands-on experience using native materials including gum nuts, seeds and pods to create your own unique pieces of jewellery.

Your creative side can also be unleashed through a painting session on mini canvasses, and making wooden-cut outs depicting native animals and traditional boomerangs. It’s a wonderful opportunity to learn about Indigenous art styles and symbolism.

Whether you’re there to enjoy the delicious treats, partake in creative activities or simply show your support, your presence will contribute to the spirit of unity and respect that NAIDOC Week develops.

Date: Tuesday 9 July
Time: 11.30am-1pm
Location: Student Hub, ground floor, Bedford Park campus.
