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 are the same each year; 27 May to 3 June.
Every year workplaces, schools, early learning services, community groups, reconciliation groups, and people right across the country host a whole range of activities.

A Little Bit Of Justice – Panel Discussion
2 June @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm ACST
Join the South Australian Museum this National Reconciliation Week for an in-depth panel discussion about our latest exhibition, A Little Bit of Justice: The Drawings of Charlie Flannigan and its continuing relevance to contemporary issues relating to the justice system and rates of Aboriginal incarceration.
Sketched in the shadow of the gallows, the rediscovered drawings of Aboriginal stockman Charlie Flannigan – the first man to be executed in the Northern Territory – offer an extraordinary visual record of life on the 19th Century frontier.
His untimely death in 1893 sparked controversy in the Northern Territory, where the media reported that “the public conscience has never been so deeply stirred by a keen sense of injustice”. An expert panel will consider and discuss the connection between these historical events and contemporary issues.
