Children’s Day bags coming soon!

For 2020, we are very pleased to announce a new partnership with Melbourne manufacturer New Model Beauty Queen and Tiwi Islands enterprise Bima Wear in producing reusable Children’s Day bags.

New Model Beauty Queen is passionate about local, sustainable, ethically produced products and will be making the bags from leftover fabric. The women of Bima Wear, a Tiwi women’s creative enterprise based in the Tiwi Islands, have kindly donated their design of Irrimaru (eagle) for the bag.

We are looking forward to distributing these sustainable bags to children in communities across Australia for National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day on 4 August.

“Bima Wear is proud to share our Irrimaru design with SNAICC for the 2020 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day. We hope all the kakirijuwi like their new bags.”

Our theme for National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day 2020 is:

We are the Elders of tomorrow, hear our voice
#StrongInCulture #EldersOfTomorrow

As the national voice for our children, SNAICC recognises the importance of Aboriginal-led community-controlled organisations and our children having a voice in determining their future.

We’ll provide more details over the next couple of months. Stay tuned for updates and resources, including information on how we can support you to run your own event or celebration for the week of 4 August.
