Bond University held their annual Indigenous Gala on 3 November. The gala serves as both a major fundraising exercise and an opportunity to promote Indigenous culture to the wider student and corporate community. Dr Patrick Corrigan introduced the event in 2010 as an art auction designed to raise funds for Indigenous student scholarships,grants and bursaries, and the event has since evolved into a celebration of Indigenous culture, featuring high profile Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders and entertainers, as well as past and present Indigenous students.
