The IPC supports NAIDOC Week 8 – 15 November 2020
The Information and Privacy Commission NSW (IPC) supports NAIDOC Week, this year celebrated from 8 – 15 November 2020.
This year’s theme: Always Was, Always Will Be, recognises that First Nations people have been spiritually and culturally connected with Australia for over 65,000 years.
NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July (and this year in November) to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. It is an opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
The Information and Privacy Commission NSW is committed to promoting the right to access government-held information and the protection of privacy of people within diverse communities in NSW, and aims to ensure that its services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are accessible, relevant and useful.
