For the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community January 26 is “Survival Day”, an important time when the community gathers to celebrate the resilience of their peoples.
The day serves to acknowledge and reinforce the present and the future of their cultures.
Survival Day embodies the reality that Indigenous cultures are strong, with much to be positive about despite the negative effects of colonisation.
Proudly hosted by Tandanya NACI and Kura Yerlo Inc., Survival Day 2016 will again be held at the Semaphore Foreshore in Adelaide, with support from the Port Adelaide & Enfield Council and the Aboriginal Sobriety Group Inc.
As cited by Tandanya NACI’s CEO Timothy Ritchie, “The acknowledgment of Survival Day is paramount to our culture, to ensure our community is further strengthened and empowered by all we embrace and stand for.”
Like many observances held across Australia, Tandanya National ’s Survival Day will offer free entertainment, presentations, information, workshops and much more.
Commencing at 12:30pm, there will be a full day’s program until 7pm, where everyone is invited to bring their family and friends to enjoy a cultural fun-filled day of entertainment.
Free Entry. Survival Day 2016 is a DRUG & ALCOHOL FREE event.
