NAIDOC Week Portrait Series

Celebrating the skills, strength and diversity of Aboriginal people working in the Aboriginal Community Controlled Healthcare Sector

The AH&MRC NAIDOC Portrait Series celebrates the outstanding career and community contributions Aboriginal people have made to the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Sector.

The Portrait Series is part of AH&MRC’s NAIDOC Week celebrations. It acknowledges the remarkable contributions Aboriginal people have made to improve the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal people, and their Communities. This series showcases the vast skills, achievements, and diversity of Aboriginal People from Elders to youth, healthcare professionals to the important role Community Members provide to deliver wholistic and culturally safe healthcare.

You can nominate any Aboriginal person that has helped to make a difference in NSW. Five Aboriginal people will be selected to be photographed by an Aboriginal photographer. These portraits will be shared during NAIDOC Week along with their personal stories and what this year’s theme ‘Always was, Always Will Be’ means to them.

NAIDOC Week is a timely opportunity to mark the important role of our Community, and Aboriginal healthcare professionals to offer the best health outcomes, and healthy futures for Aboriginal people.

If you have any questions in relation to the AH&MRC’s NAIDOC Week Portrait Series email the AH&MRC’s Communications Team:
