The Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection is observing NAIDOC Week with something the museum says it has been doing for a little while now.
"NAIDOC Week is a week to celebrate the contributions of indigenous Australians, and it's celebrated widely in Australia,” says Director Margo Smith. “We have been doing this here for the last couple of years."
NAIDOC stands for National Aboriginal and Islander Day of Observance Committee.
During NAIDOC Week the museum will fly the Aboriginal and Torres Strait flags.
On Saturday, July 12, the museum will give free tours of its exhibits and hold a didgeridoo and other aboriginal instruments performance.
All events are free, and open to the public.
