SNAICC – National Voice for Children has announced this year’s National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day theme. Children’s Day on 4th August is the largest annual day celebrating the lives, strengths, histories and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in Australia. The day is an opportunity for all Australians to show their support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, as well as learn about the crucial impact that culture, family and community play in the life of every child. This year’s theme is: “We are the Elders of tomorrow, hear our voice” to acknowledge the importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children having a voice in determining their own futures. The design of this year’s reusable Children’s Day bags features an Irrimaru (eagle) as depicted by Bima Wear, a women’s creative collective based in the Tiwi Islands. More information on when bags will be available and how to register Children’s Day events will be published in eNews as they become available.
