National Reconciliation Week 2022

27 May to 3 June

The National Reconciliation Week 2022 theme will be announced in February 2022.

We thank everyone who contributed to, and took action during, National Reconciliation Week 2021.

Our 2021 theme – More than a word. Reconciliation takes action – continues beyond the week!

Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians – as individuals, families, communities, organisations and importantly as a nation. At the heart of this journey are relationships between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

To our newer supporters, please remember the importance of privileging and amplifying First Nations’ voices as you add your voice to calls for reconciliation and justice.

We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation, and in playing our part we collectively build relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures, and futures.

2021 marks twenty years of Reconciliation Australia and almost three decades of Australia’s formal reconciliation process.

20 Actions for reconciliation in 2021

2021’s theme urges us all to take action for reconciliation. Check out 20 Actions you can take for Reconciliation in 2021

We must act for reconciliation every day, not just during National Reconciliation Week.

k.Reconciliation is more than raising awareness and knowledge. As a nation, and importantly, as people, we need to move from ‘safe’ to ‘brave’ in order to advance reconciliation.

Action by Jessica Johnson,  is the story of the land and community sharing the united call for action on reconciliation.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island peoples have been listening to the heartbeat of the land and sea for generations. With their rainbow shaped souls the spirits ask for us to join and make reconciliation more than a word, take action. We need to love one another and every aspect of the existing environment and community – we all have a role to play.

We are the change. Read more about Action.
