GRAMS NAIDOC Week Finale on Friday 8th July

Due to the wintery weather expected on Friday July 8, GRAMS NAIDOC Week finale celebrations will now be held indoors at the QEII CENTRE at 88 Durlacher St, instead of the new Geraldton Multipurpose Centre. The event will bring together entertainers, storytellers, dancers, bush tucker samples, poetry and life in a kaleidoscopic celebration of Aboriginal culture.

From 6pm – 9pm on Friday July 8, anyone within the Geraldton community can enjoy this free community event by indulging in free ‘bush tucker’ samples, including kangaroo sausage rolls, crocodile tempura, Emu Patties and more (while supply lasts). Kangaroo tail stew and soup will be available later in the evening. 

Entertainer Phil Walley-Stack will MC the event and deliver a digeridoo performance in traditional costume, while local poet and elder Nola Gregory will recite a poem she has penned especially for the event. Aboriginal elder Clarrie Cameron will share a yarn or two in line with the NAIDOC theme, Songlines the living narrative of our nation.
Children are invited to try their hand at traditional artwork under the guidance of local artist Marrika Laudehr.

Ikwahn Café will have food and drink on sale. Geraldton Regional Aboriginal Medical Service chief executive Deborah Woods encouraged people of all ages and backgrounds to come down and also enjoy live music from local band, Morning Sons.

This free community event is a smoke and alcohol free family friendly event for all to enjoy.
