About this event

NAIDOC Week update

Due to uncertainty regarding COVID-19 restrictions next week, we have made the difficult decision to postpone some of our face to face NAIDOC Week events and deliver some activities online.

Thank you to everyone who has already made a booking for events.

Some events delivered by our NAIDOC Week partners may go ahead, pending announcements to be made later this week. For other events we are looking at alternative dates or delivery and will be in touch soon to let you know the plan.

We know it is extremely disappointing for many in our community who were looking forward to our NAIDOC Week celebrations, especially as last year’s events were also postponed due to COVID-19.

We’d especially like to thank all of our NAIDOC Week stakeholders, artists, workshop presenters and partners for being so flexible and working with us to ensure the events go ahead either next week or at a later date.

Thank you for your patience and we will be in touch soon with more details.

A private movie screening at Backlot Theatre showing Bran Nue Dae.

Bran Nue Dae tells the story of a young man, Willie, who lives in Broome with his mother and is in love with a local girl, Rosie.

At the start of the school year he is sent back to Perth, under the care of a strict German priest. Willie ends up running away from school and finds himself lost and alone in Perth.

He befriends Uncle Tadpole, a streetwise man, who agrees to take him home to Broome. Uncle Tadpole tricks a German tourist and his hippie girlfriend into driving them the almost 2,500km trip. Willie is also racing against time to ensure he can win the heart of Rosie.

The film follows their escapades on the road, and the diverse characters they encounter. On their return to Broome a series of secrets are uncovered.

Enjoy complimentary popcorn and water provided by Gather Foods; a majority aboriginal-owned and led catering company featuring native foods.
