National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to recognise and appreciate Australia’s shared histories, cultures and achievements. NRW is a time to reflect on how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation within Australia.
National Reconciliation Week is celebrated between 27 May – 3 June. These dates coinciding with two significant milestones, the 1967 Referendum and the High Court Mabo decision.
This year’s theme, ‘More than a word, Reconciliation takes action.’ urges the reconciliation movement towards bolder and more impactful action.
To celebrate this years theme, the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney is providing a week of tours and weaving workshops to participate in and learn about and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
