Join us for a unique opportunity to see Indigenous Elders from across WA reflecting on their accomplishments, lives and culture in a series of films by Indigenous filmmakers.


We invite you to walk with us in a movement of the Australian people for a better future.

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Indigenous Communities Stories (ICS) are films of Indigenous Elders from across WA reflecting on their lives, providing a unique opportunity for these remarkable stories to be shared. The films feature desert and town stories in different languages and explore varied facets of Indigenous history and culture including Stolen Generation, art and music.

Films (each film runs for approximately 15 minutes):

Alf Taylor directed by Irma Woods and Karla Hart

Bigali Hanlon directed by Mitch Torres

Cedric Jacobs directed by Karla Hart

Laurel Nannup directed by Mitch Torres


Date: Monday 1 to Friday 5 July 2019

Time: 4 films on a loop from 12pm to 2pm

Venue: City of Perth Library, 573 Hay Street, Perth


Please join us for this free event, no bookings required.

This event is run in partnership with Screenwest, Lotterywest, Rio Tinto, the Healing Foundation and the Western Australian Museum and is supported by Gilbert + Tobin.
