NAIDOC Week is held in Australia from 2 to 9 July to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and the contribution that indigenous people make to Australian society.
The NAIDOC 2017 theme, “Our Languages Matter”, aims to emphasise the essential role that indigenous languages play in cultural identity, linking people to their land and water and in the transmission of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, spirituality and rites, through story and song.
The week is celebrated in the whole country with events and activities in indigenous communities, government agencies, community organizations, local councils, workplaces and schools.
When: from Sunday 2 to 9 July

Australian Focus Film Festival
The Australian Embassy of Rome and L’Isola del Cinema are delighted to present this year’s Australian Focus, two evenings of Australian cinema underneath the stars of Rome.
On 28 June Goldstone will be screened, a compelling thriller in which an Aboriginal detective is swept up in an unexpected web of crime in the little town of Goldstone. The day after will see the screening of Red Dog, a touching and true story of a dog who crossed most of the Australian continent to find his master.
Both films show fascinating, unique landscapes and tell unmistakeably Australian and yet universal stories.
