Grants program for local Australia Day 2021 activities
In 2020, The NADC launched a new campaign, The Story of Australia that calls on Australians to reflect, respect and celebrate on Australia Day.
On Australia Day, we reflect on our nation’s past which began more than 65,000 years ago, the impact of European settlement on our First Australians and the waves of immigration that have helped us become one of the world’s greatest multicultural success stories.
At the same time, we respect the contributions of everyday Australians, just like those in the campaign, and we celebrate by coming together and connecting with family, friends, community.
Research completed in February 2020 found the campaign “encouraged a sense of belonging, relevance and positivity towards Australia Day”.
With the support of the our State/Territory Network, the local government sector plays a vital role in Australia Day. This has been a challenging year, and we want to show our support.
I’m pleased to advise that the NADC has developed grants across two packages to assist the local government sector deliver Australia Day events in 2021.
