This week is “NAIDOC” Week, so come to Australian Pavilion!
Australian Pavilion at Yeosu Expo hosts NAIDOC Week from July 4th to July 8th and provides various events. NAIDOC, which stands for National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Day of Celebrations, is held across Australia each first week of July to commemorate the history, culture and establishments of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
NAIDOC Week will be celebrated at the Expo too, and there will be many culture and art events. Visitors can meet and learn about art and music of Aborigines of Australia.
First of all, Billy Missi, an aboriginal artist, will explain the art works and spread the teachings of Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders. He, who has been working on nature and ocean, will be an active curator.

A Digeridoo player Kristian Benton will be at the “Experiencing Australian Traditional Instrument Workshop”, showing how to play Digeridoo and Clap Sticks. The workshop is at 3:30 p.m. every day from July 4th to July 7th. Also, Kristian Benton will give a Digeridoo performance at the Expo Ocean Plaza at 12:30 p.m.
