This year's NAIDOC week theme, “Because of her, we can!” celebrates our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Mothers, Aunties, Sisters, Daughters and Elders - they are our leaders, trailblazers, politicians, activists and social change advocates who fought and continue to fight for justice, empowerment, cultural expression and our rights as the Indigenous peoples of this country.

In tribute, we will display an exhibition of new photographs of “Deadly Redfern Women” from legendary photographer, Barbara McGrady from 10am - 4pm

Whether you are interested in local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music, dance and performances, honouring our women, learning about culture and history, or playing sport, the place to be on Friday 13 July is at Inner City NAIDOC at the NCIE.

Organised by a coalition of local groups and organisations and held at the NCIE, the Inner City NAIDOC Culture & Sports Day is the signature community event for NAIDOC celebrations in the inner city of Sydney and has been running for over 20 years.

At last year’s Inner City NAIDOC Family and Sports Day over 5000 visitors came to the NCIE throughout the day.

Deadly Redfern Women Photo Exhibition

Inner City NAIDOC will pay tribute to our local women in a photo exhibition of new photographs from legendary photojournalist, Aunty Barbara McGrady, titled Deadly Redfern Women. The photos will be displayed on site at the NCIE during the event.
