UNSW NAIDOC Week 2020

8-15 November 2020

Always Was, Always Will Be. 

The UNSW Pro Vice-Chancellor Indigenous, Professor Megan Davis, and Nura Gili invite you to celebrate NAIDOC Week 2020! 

NAIDOC Week celebrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, histories and achievements. This year, a broad range of online and in-person events and programs will focus on the theme of Always Was, Always Will Be.

'Always Was, Always Will Be' is a phrase borne from Aboriginal land rights movements. It recognises that First Nations people have occupied, owned, managed and cared for this continent for over 60,000 years and continue to do so - sovereignty was never ceded.
