National Reconciliation Week

2023 Events

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.


You can also add your own event to this calendar or register your private event.

A Little Bit Of Justice – The Drawings of Charlie Flannigan

5 May @ 10:00 am - 10 September @ 5:00 pm ACST

The first person to be hanged in the Northern Territory, Flannigan became the centre of intense debate when George Pace, a white man also sentenced to death for murder, had his sentence commuted to life in prison.

The drawings, held in the South Australian Museum’s Archives, were made by Charlie Flannigan while in solitary confinement and are unique observations of his personal history and culture.

Charlie Flannigan was denied justice, but his story lives on through his drawings, allowing us to know more about his life rather than just the circumstances of his death.
