Join us this NAIDOC Week to experience a series of spectacular illuminations on the National Carillon.

The projections will feature artworks and designs from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists participating in the AIATSIS online Indigenous Art Market.  

This year’s NAIDOC theme Always Was, Always Will Be reinforces the strength and resilience of First Nations Peoples to survive and thrive.

The illuminations will be visible from the shores of Lake Burley Griffin and on Aspen Island throughout NAIDOC Week; only the second event where projections have featured on the iconic building, with the last one being National Reconciliation Week earlier this year. We encourage you to see the show in person, follow the action on our online channels and share content using the hashtag #IAMaiatsis

Indigenous artworks will be available online to purchase throughout NAIDOC Week from hundreds of Indigenous artists and art centres from around Australia.
