Traditional arts and crafts from local women on display
An exhibition and display of traditional arts and crafts from local women will be held at the Peninsula Community Centre as part of Naidoc Week from 11am to 1pm on July 3.
Interactive activities will include storytelling, bush tucker, face painting and live entertainment.
A traditional smoking ceremony will open the festivities.
As well as fun and games for children, there will also be information, support and referrals available to supportive Indigenous groups.
There will be a photographic exhibition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women who have made personal contributions to those in our community.
"Our aim is to not only acknowledge high profile Indigenous leaders, but also everyday local women who are a big part of our society," said Ms Emma Gilby, general manager of Coast Community Connections, which runs the community centre.
"We'd like to welcome all locals and families to come and enjoy a great day of festivities at the Peninsula Community Centre.
"This is a great opportunity for members of the community to come and celebrate our Indigenous community."
The goal of the event is to highlight the achievements and contributions that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have made to the community and provide an opportunity to share this culture with other locals and families.
