National Reconciliation Week runs annually from 27 May - 3 June. The 2020 National Reconciliation Week theme is 'In This Together’.

Reconciliation Week is a time to focus on creating a city that is strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It is a time to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements, and to contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

 

This year, we are delivering our Reconciliation Week program a little differently, as all events will be online.

Join us for a range of free online events:
