PENRITH NAIDOC 2023: Sharing Knowledge, Sharing Culture Twilight Markets
Our culture is dependent on the continuous sharing of knowledge passed down from our Elders. Our event highlights the importance of our Elders' knowledge through yarns by the fire, market stalls selling their art, food and other items made by them. You will find large portraits of our Elders on display around the site, with their story attached. These are for sale through a silent auction, celebrating them and how much they are loved and respected by our communities. Businesses and other organisations can sponsor or hire a stall to allow other community groups to showcase their Elders and sell their items. The event shows appreciation to our Elders and ensures the wisdom they possess is not lost but celebrated. With the ongoing success of our annual NAIDOC events, we anticipate a large turn out to our twilight markets.
