Reflecting on January 26

Thu 25 January

We’ve compiled some of the things you can do in Naarm, Melbourne.

As we approach January 26, we acknowledge that this is a day of mourning and survival for the First Peoples of this country, and not a date to celebrate.

Our solidarity is always with First Peoples, whose culture is central to our future as well as our history. We are honoured to work alongside and learn from the incredible talent of First Peoples creatives at RISING and within our community every day.

If you're looking for ways to show up and take meaningful action as an ally—as an individual and as an organisation—we’ve compiled some of the things you can do in Naarm, Melbourne on January 26.

Join or watch the Victorian NAIDOC Dawn Service, Kings Domain Resting Place, 5am—7am.

Participate in the Invasion Day Rally, from Parliament House to Flinders Street Station, 10am.

Come together for Share the Spirit festival featuring Kutcha Edwards, No Fixed Address and more at Sidney Myer Music Bowl, 1pm—9pm.

Head to Fed Square for a First Peoples screen program, children's activities plus free ice cream and food by Indigenous chefs, Federation Square, 10am—10pm.

Tune into NITV and SBS for a full day of programming which will champion First Nations voices and Blak excellence.
