NAIDOC Week at Sovereign Place Town Centre

Sovereign Place Town Centre's NAIDOC Week event has provided a unique opportunity for children to immerse themselves in local Indigenous culture.

Aunty Debbs from Cooeee Sistas Art Workshops led a Traditional Dot Painting workshop for local children.

Aunty Debbs is a proud Dharawal Aboriginal artist living on Birpai country and enjoys teaching traditional and contemporary art, weaving and sharing Indigenous culture through Aboriginal language songs and story.

Attendees had an opportunity to create artwork on boomerangs and Australian animal cutouts.

“Cooeee Sistas is excited for the opportunity to share local Indigenous culture and ‘keep the fire burning’ with the next generation of Port Macquarie kids, in collaboration with Sovereign Place Town Centre,” Aunty Debbs said.

This year’s NAIDOC Week theme to Keep the Fire Burning, underscores the importance of supporting and celebrating Indigenous traditions.

“Sovereign Place Town Centre enjoys the opportunity to celebrate local Indigenous culture with the community during NAIDOC Week. This is the Centre’s first NAIDOC Week activation and ties in with Lewis Land’s Reconciliation Action Plan to create opportunities to increase understanding of and build respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures,” a spokesperson for Sovereign Place Town Centre noted.
