NAIDOC Week Student Artwork Competition


USC is looking for submissions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Artwork that reflect this year’s national NAIDOC week theme: Because of her, we can!

For at least 65,000 years, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have carried our dreaming stories, songlines, languages and knowledge that have kept our culture strong and enriched us as the oldest continuing culture on the planet.

Their achievements, their voice, their unwavering passion give us strength and have empowered past generations and paved the way for generations to come.

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July (8-15 July 2018). It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.
