When is National Reconciliation Week 2023?
‘More than a word. Reconciliation takes action’
National Reconciliation Week takes place between May 27 and June 3 every year. These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey — the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.
The 2022 National Reconciliation Week theme of “Be Brave. Make Change.” spoke for itself. It’s a challenge to all Australians – individuals, families, communities, organisations and government – to Be Brave and address the unresolved task of reconciliation so we can Make Change for the benefit of every Australian.
“Let us start a new chapter in the future of Australia, where we walk as equals. Where reconciliation is not just a word and a day in the calendar, but where we reconcile the trauma and atrocities of the past and celebrate our shared future and knowledge.”
William Tilmouth, Arrernte man and Founding Chair of Children’s Ground, Reconciliation Week 2018
Children’s Ground is a First Nations Organisation led by First Nations Communities in Australia
From infants to Elders, we work with entire communities over a 25-year period to make real and lasting change. From learning and wellbeing to community development, cultural development and systemic change, Children’s Ground is an evidenced-based approach, designed with First Nations leaders to achieve radical reform.
|How can I be a part of change?||National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about the truth of our Australian history, the depth of our First Nations cultures and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia with First Nations peoples and communities.|
