NAIDOC Week 2021 — Instagram Challenge
NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through yearly themes.
This years’ theme is, Heal Country! Which calls for all Australians to seek for stronger protections around First Nations land, waters, sacred sites, and cultural heritage.
To encourage participation from all Australians, Our Dilly Bag is running a 'Instagram Challenge', which seeks for individuals to engage in daily Instagram activities during NAIDOC Week events.
