NAIDOC is a special event in Blacktown, which is home to Australia’s largest urban Aboriginal population. It is a day of music and celebration; a day to remember Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contributions to our nation.
The streets of the Blacktown CBD will come alive with a full day of live music on Thursday, 24 May 2018. ‘Bite’ your way through diverse cuisines and sample a curated music program of some of the region’s best artists.
Like most public art collections, Blacktown City Council’s collection tells the stories of our City through the work of artists. Western Sydney is home to many public art collections. Does your local Council have an art collection?
New artworks by leading Australian contemporary artists will be unveiled at “Ngara – Ngurangwa Byallara (Listen, Hear, Think – The Place Speaks)” on the Blacktown Native Institution site on Saturday, 9 June 2018.
New works by Tony Albert, Sharyn Egan and Moogahlin Performing Arts aim to bring the spirit and culture of the Blacktown Native Institution site to life, and imagine a future for this important landmark.
