National Reconciliation Week runs annually from May 27 – 3 June.
The National Reconciliation Week theme for #NRW2020 – In this together – is resonating in ways we could not have foreseen when it was announced last year, but it reminds us whether in a crisis or in reconciliation we are all #InThisTogether.
This year during National Reconciliation Week, all Australians are invited to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders cultures and histories, to share that knowledge and help us grow as a nation. In our region within the Bega Valley Shire Council we stand rich with cultural landscapes, stories, cultural history, language and our communities.
What is National Reconciliation Week?
National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
The dates for NRW commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision.
Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
